Community Engagement

Juilliard’s community engagement programs benefit various audiences in New York City and around the world, sharing the extraordinary talents of Juilliard students and spreading the joy of the performing arts. They also give the students the benefit of teaching and performing in diverse communities, helping them to develop as artists and citizens. 

Community Engagement Grants

Juilliard's Alan D. Marks Center for Career Services and Entrepreneurship offers funding each year for projects conceived by Juilliard students who employ their talent in public service programs. Activities like these deepen the students’ understanding of their role and impact as artists. Preference is given to projects that have not only educational value to the student beyond conventional artistic or academic studies, but also potential benefit to others, especially those in underserved areas of the United States.

Teaching Programs and Fellowships

Juilliard students can apply for fellowships and grants that support their growth as teaching artists. 

Interactive Concerts and Fellowships

Juilliard students can also receive support in presenting performances in schools and health-care facilities.
