The Twin City Players established the Brian Swiger Memorial Scholarship in 1996 in memory of former member Brian Swiger. The scholarships are for senior Berrien County high school graduates who have demonstrated a keen interest in theater-related pursuits during their college career. Winners, however, can use the prize money to pursue any field of study at any accredited college, university, trade school, or arts institution. The scholarship is awarded based on school and community activities, PCT participation, a GPA of 2.5 or higher, and a short essay.
