An anonymous donor gave the University of North Carolina School of the Arts (UNCSA) a $10 million dollar donation. The gift is the most substantial the school has ever received from an individual donor.
The funds will support scholarships, faculty and several new endeavors including:
• Creating UNCSA’s Institute for Performance Innovation
• Creating a graduate animatronics program and graduate gaming and virtual reality program in the School of Filmmaking
Winston-Salem-based UNCSA is the country’s first public arts conservatory and a top-ranked performing arts conservatory. The School of Filmmaking ranks in the top 20 film schools in the country.
