About the Marks Center

The Alan D. Marks Center for Career Services and Entrepreneurship was established in 2015 by Juilliard trustee Michael E. Marks and his wife, Carole. The center is named after Michael Marks’s brother, the late Alan D. Marks, a Juilliard graduate (BM ’71, piano). The mission of the Alan D. Marks Center is to provide resources, programming, and advisement that will prepare students for a smooth professional transition, allowing them to navigate a successful career in the performing arts and create new opportunities.

Kovner Fellows benefit from comprehensive scholarship support covering tuition, room and board, and additional expenses, and by enhanced programmatic content.
