Limited scholarship funds are available through the Kahilu Theatre Scholarship Committee. Applications for financial aid can be found on the class registrations site. Investing in arts education is something the Kahilu greatly values because it gives the children of the community an opportunity to learn, to discover their passion and their purpose. They learn responsibility and to love themselves, to move and dance and sing, and to feel safe to tell their stories, whatever they might be.
