Stratford Travel Award Opportunity

The Stratford Travel Award provides an opportunity for a Lansing Community College student to attend theater productions during the Stratford Festival in Stratford, Ontario.  Established in 1999 by LCC faculty members Nan Jackson and Vern Mesler to commemorate Cathy J. Siebert’s completion of a doctorate in English Education from Michigan State University, the award celebrates the relevance of Shakespeare’s plays to our lives today and seeks to encourage an appreciation of his work as it was meant to be experienced—through live performance.

An award of $300 is given each May to be used for travel expenses to Stratford, Ontario, and the purchase of theater ticket(s) to a Shakespeare play (and others, as desired).  Part of the award may be used to help defray costs of the required passport for travel to Canada. The recipient must agree to use the money for this purpose and to contribute to the “Portfolio of Stratford Experiences” upon his/her return.  Preference is given to a student attending the Stratford Festival for the first time.  In order to qualify for the award, the student must have successfully completed or be currently enrolled in ENGL 122 or ENGL 290.

Submit the Stratford Award Application and essay to Prof. Teresa Purvis,
English, Humanities, & Social Sciences Department, A&S 201.
