The Irene Ryan Scholarships provide recognition, honor, and financial assistance to outstanding student performers wishing to pursue further education. The Irene Ryan Foundation offers 19 awards and two fellowships annually. Sixteen of the awards consist of a $500 scholarship for the representatives from the eight KCACTF regions.
