B. Wilson Producing Scholars Criteria

B. Wilson Producing Scholars (BWPS) alleviates financial burden and provides administrative
guidance for college-level, self-producing dance artists. BWPS seeks to prepare students for real-world experiences as producing artists.

BWPS is operated by a Founding Director and Advisory Board made up of 6 members. As dance artists, activists, musicians, creators, teachers, and doctors in our own right, we vow to make decisions based solely on the directions of the rubric set forth. BWPS does not discriminate on the basis of race, creed, color, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender expression, age, height, weight, physical or mental ability, veteran status, military obligations, and/or marital status.


BWPS is fiscally sponsored by FJC: A Foundation of Philanthropic Funds. B. Wilson Producing Scholars is a Scholarship Award Account at FJC, a 501c3 public charity. As such, all donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
