The Jason Chin Improv Scholarship is transitioning into the Jason Chin Improv Bursary. Read more about this shift here.


In memory of the wonderful and much-missed Jason Chin, the Nursery is delighted to offer scholarships for all courses in order to make sure that the fun and community of improvisation is available to as many people as possible.

Up to two places per class are available and you are encouraged to apply if you would not normally be able to afford these courses, or would be unlikely to attend it for any other reason. There are no set criteria, and you can apply for any course that is live on the Nursery website. Places will be allocated two weeks before the course begins and all that we ask is that people awarded scholarships attend as much of the course as they possibly can.
