Isaac has been invited to attend the Bolshoi Academy in Moscow, Russia. This is an incredible honor--only a handful of Americans are ever invited. Besides my mind being completely blown and my heart being torn to shreds, I am so excited for this boy and his life prospects.
It is a state school, so all Russian students attend the Bolshoi for free (or for the price of taxes their parent's already paid). However, they do not offer scholarships to international students. The costs of tuition, education and room and board is very high (not to mention travel, more dance clothes, international immunizations, etc.). Although individual contributions would be welcome, the expenses are a little beyond that.
Does anyone know of a foundation or organization that offers grants or sponsors artistic aspirations of young people?
We only have about one month to secure funding so any tips would be super helpful in narrowing down our search.
Thank you, friends!
And congratulation, Isaac!
