The Department of Theatre makes annual awards of scholarships in several categories and for varying amounts. These are made in recognition of the variety of talents necessary for success in the performance, design, technical, stage management, and arts management areas of the theatre.
New majors are considered for scholarships by their audition/interview. Current students compete in March of each year. Notification for applications will appear here and on the physical callboard.
The faculty and staff will make final recommendation of the recipients of all scholarships to the Chair. They shall have the prerogative to weigh criteria for selection in whatever way they deem appropriate, or to withhold awarding the scholarship if, in their opinion, there is no qualified applicant.
University Scholarships and Financial Aid
Department of Theatre awards are made on the basis of academic achievement, experience, accomplishments and service. Some Department scholarships also take into account financial need. The University’s Office of Student Financial Aid and Scholarships also provides awards based academic achievement and financial need. Current financial assistance information is available from the Financial Aid Office at (269) 387-6000.
