Rockford University is thrilled to announce that our Performing Arts Department received a Rockford Area Arts Council 2024 Community Arts Access Grant for $2,500. 

Beth Drog, Chair of the RUPA department, attended the RAAC 2024 Access Grant Reception today at the Rockford Area Convention & Visitors Bureau in downtown Rockford, where she accepted this grant.

This grant will go toward the RUPA students attending the 2024 Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland. RU students will tour Edinburgh, learn about its rich history of performing arts, attend performances at the festival,  and perform their pieces for festival audiences. $2,000 will cover one student’s trip. 

Anyone interested in helping the RUPA department raise more money for their trip, can head here.
