Each year the Department of Theatre Arts offers grants to selected students who demonstrate a strong work ethic, outstanding participation, and student leadership within the Theatre Arts Department and its productions.
Grants typically range from $500-$2000 and may be renewed annually upon satisfactory review by the student's work supervisor and the Department Chair.
Whether you are interested in theatre performance or in our design and technical program, you will have the opportunity to cultivate and enhance your skills and talents while we relieve some of the financial burden.
