The Dennis Krausnick Fellowship Fund was established in 2018 by Company Founder and longtime Director of Training, the late Dennis Krausnick (1942 – 2018).
One of Dennis’s missions at the end of his life was to establish this fund in order to offer scholarships to artists of the global majority wishing to study with Shakespeare & Company’s Center for Actor Training.
Gifts to the Dennis Krausnick Fellowship Fund help bring Dennis’s mission to life. In an overwhelming outpouring of love and support, more than 1,000 individual donors have contributed to the DKF Fund in his memory, enabling Shakespeare & Company to grant more than $97,000 in scholarships to 86 artists of the global majority in four years.
These gifts play a vital role in increasing access to training for a greater number of theater-makers and teaching artists, helping to build a more encompassing and inclusive theater.
