Eric Engelhardt Memorial Scholarship
An individual suitable for the Eric Engelhardt memorial scholarship has professional experience or is well-versed in another or many other art forms, but has had limited or nontraditional exposure and training in the art of puppetry. In addition to his or her original reason for attending the conference, the participant will also be required to create their own participant piece or have a major contributing role in another participant’s project. He or she must also host the Eric Engelhardt Memorial Karaoke night that happens at the pub mid-week during the conference.

Funds for this Scholarship are raised in part by PUPPET PANDEMIC, a showcase of works developed at the National Puppetry Conference. This showcase of puppetry pieces explore the contagious nature of puppets. These artists redefine conventional notions of puppetry. From marionettes to papier mache mayhem, puppeteers breed new strains of creativity and present them to an audience of willing test subjects.
All profits from the The PUPPET PANDEMIC performances, raffles, and donations fund the Alumni Scholarship to attend the National Puppetry Conference held at the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center. The Alumni Scholarship is meant to support artists and encourage them to propagate provocative theatrical works.
Please help spread the PUPPET PANDEMIC by donating to the Alumni Scholarship!
