Moxie Talent Agency Scholarship
The Moxie Talent Agency Scholarship Fund provides a scholarship or award each semester to a deserving theatre undergraduate student who is looking to pursue a career in the arts other than being an actor—whether that is as an agent, a manager or another business-related occupation in the entertainment community.
After graduation, Stacey Siegert (c ’2000), started her professional career in New York as an actor. She found that she had more of a passion for other parts of the industry. She obtained other experience by working as an assistant to the director of marketing for The Blue Man Group, as a casting assistant for Law & Order: SVU, as a business consultant to actors at TVI Actors Studio and as a manager at Wilhelmina Models. After returning to Kansas City, she worked as a Senior Agent at Exposure Model and Talent, Inc. After seven years working as an assistant, she decided to branch out on her own and open Moxie Talent Agency, LLC in October of 2013.
Eligible candidates must be pursuing the possibility of working in another role other than becoming an actor, someone who is also pursuing knowledge on the business side of the acting world. The award is based on the
student’s tenacity and their curiosity of learning the business side of the business.
