TCG/ITI Travel Grants

The Theatre Communications Group/International Theatre Institute (TCG/ITI) Travel Grants have been designed to foster cultural exchange and artistic partnerships between theatre professionals in the United States and their counterparts in Russia, Eastern Europe or Central Europe (see below for geographic scope). These $3,500 grants will support trips in either direction by theatre artists, administrators and educators, enabling these professionals to share ideas, gain exposure to each other's cultural traditions and contemporary theatre techniques and/or work together.
