Australian Theatre for Young People (ATYP) and their International Ambassadors Rebel Wilson and Rose Byrne, have partnered with ATC and G’Day USA to present the International Ambassador Scholarship Program.

Recipients will receive a yearlong mentoring with ATYP in Sydney Australia, culminating in the opportunity to travel to Los Angeles to work on a project with ATC and be profiled at the G’Day USA Gala in January 2018.

Rebel Wilson and Rose Byrne are both alumni of ATYP and are generously supporting these two scholarship funds. Each of the scholarships has different selection criteria but both are centred around identifying, nurturing and promoting the next generation of theatre artists.

Rebel Wilson has donated $15,000 per year for three years (2016-2018) to fund the Rebel Wilson Theatremaker Scholarship to be awarded to an emerging artist interested in generating their own content. The recipient can be any combination of the following: actor/writer/producer.

Rose Byrne has also donated $15,000 per year for three years (2016-2018) to support an emerging female leader in the arts. This could be a director, writer, actor or producer. Her commitment to the support of women in film is widely known but this scholarship marks her commitment to women in theatre.
