Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman Scholarship

The BGB Studio is proud to present the Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman Scholarship for LGBT+ actors of color.

The BGB Studio’s Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman Scholarship is awarded to an LGBT+ actor of color with a fierce desire to explore and express what is unique about them through their acting and the leadership and generosity to use their talent to change the industry’s often limited perception of humanity.

Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman was famously cast in a straight role for a pilot that, once the show was picked up to air, was changed to a gay role to better reflect the brightness of Jeffrey’s soul. He was undeniable and he changed the industry.

The Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman scholarship awards one LGBT+ identifying actor of color one (1) 8-week class with our Master Teachers in the interest of sharpening an actor’s skills to an undeniable point, making them a creative and professional force. Applicants must be Los Angeles-based.

All LGBT+  identifying actors of color are welcome to apply.
