APAP realizes that the severe effects of the pandemic on the performing arts field present extreme financial hardship for many of our members. In response, we have reviewed our programmatic grant funding and program-specific endowments (William Dawson Endowment and Classical Connections Endowment) that are restricted to supporting the advancement and development of specific sectors of the field.
We have determined a way to re-imagine and repurpose some of these resources this fiscal year, while keeping within grant guidelines and restrictions, to make conference scholarships of up to $100 available on a rolling basis to APAP members with the available funds. These scholarships will offset the $150 Early-Bird conference registration rate and enable scholarship recipients to pay a flat $50 for attending the conference (Individuals eligible for lower registration rates can be awarded an amount that would lower registration to $50.).
These scholarships are designed to respond to the needs of members facing hardship with the hope that these funds can serve as many members as possible until we reach the fund limit. To ensure we are able to assist as many people in the field as possible, we strongly encourage no more than two people from the same organization or company to apply.
Who can apply?
- APAP member organization staff
- Artists on the roster of current APAP member agents/manager companies
- All APAP organizational member categories (presenters, artists/agents/managers, vendors, consultants and support organizations)
- Artist Access members
- Individual Performing Arts Professional members
Important Information, Deadlines and Instructions
- Applications must be received no later than Friday, December 18, 2020 at 5:00 p.m. (EST).
- Scholarships will be awarded on a rolling basis until funds are exhausted.
- Fund recipients will be notified within 2 business days of the application close date and before the Early-Bird Registration rate ends on December 18, 2020 at 5:00 p.m. (EST)
- The Fund provides the recipient with a maximum of $100 credit towards one APAP|NYC+ registration. Recipients will receive a code to register for the conference at a special $50 rate. Fund recipients must register for conference and pay the remaining $50 registration fee by Friday, December 18, 2020 at 5:00 p.m. (EST) or will forfeit the scholarship.

We know that sometimes determining your overall investment in the conference can be confusing, so we want to offer you some "conference math".
Example one: EXPO Hall Math
Let's say you want to purchase a booth. What do you do?
Once you've confirmed that your APAP membership is current*, then you can login to purchase your one full registration ($150 during the Early Bird period, through Dec. 4, 2020. Otherwise, it is $199.).
Once EXPO Hall sales open in late November, you can modify your registration and add a booth. (In this example, let's pretend we're purchasing a premium booth for $275, which includes a pitch session). Maybe at a later time, you decide to add booth staff (again, for this example, let's say, three colleagues from your organization and four artists from your roster. You will then modify your registration again and add seven booth badge registrants (3+4 = 7 x $50/per badge = $350). Your total then is $150 + 275 + 350 = $775.
Example two: Showcase Math
Let's say you want to purchase Showcase Listings for yourself or your artists. What do you do?
If you have not already confirmed that your APAP membership is current* and logged in to purchase your one full registration ($150 during the Early Bird period, through Dec. 4, 2020. Otherwise, it is $199.), you'll need to do so first.
Once Showcase Listings sales open in late November, you can modify your registration and add your Showcase Listings for $10/each. In this example, let's pretend we have 10 artists who will put on 2 showcases each (10 x 2 = 20 x $10 = $200). When each showcase is ready to publish, you will modify your registration to add each listing. Your total is then $150 +$200 = $350.
*Remember to always factor in the cost of APAP membership and also that we are currently offering flexible membership rates!
