Teaching comedy is something we love, and we want as many people to learn from us as possible. That is why we offer two, annual full scholarships for individual students to help them go through all the levels. Applications are available online. You can request a hard copy, and it must be returned before the deadline. Big Canvas’ Board of Directors decides scholarship recipients, and they will be notified no later than two weeks before the next Level 1 class begins. Current students who receive a scholarship will have any forthcoming classes free of charge for one calendar year.


Internships are available for a select number of students currently enrolled in Levels 2-5 or who are continuing their education with Big Canvas. Interns must volunteer for five hours over each 8-week course. They help with ticket collection at shows, filming performances, and fundraising.
