On Thursday evening 26 June, a few minutes after the end of the Take It Off graduation performance, a scholarship from Friends of Codarts Foundation was handed over to circus student Benjamin Kuitenbrouwer by Henk Klaassen. Professional arts education in general, and Codarts with its talented students in particular, deserve support, in the view of Friends of Codarts Foundation. Not only moral support, but also financial assistance. At the end of each academic year, among other things a number of scholarships are awarded by the foundation to excellent students who graduate from one of the Codarts study programmes. The scholarships are intended for the realization of study purposes. The first scholarship of 2014 has gone to Benjamin Kuitenbrouwer.
