Theater Scholarships

Each year, up to 20 full and partial performance and technical theater scholarships are awarded to students who:

Smokey Joe's Cafe
  • Demonstrate a commitment to the Theatre Program
  • Show potential for learning and growth
  • Have financial need

Scholarship awards are based on auditions/interviews. Acting students are required to perform auditions consisting of one monologue and an interview with program faculty. Students seeking technical theater scholarships are encouraged to submit a portfolio of their past work during their interview.

Scholarships consist of tuition waivers. Students on scholarship must maintain a GPA of at least 3.0 in their theater classes and an overall GPA of 2.0 or better.

Some students may also be eligible for aid through the Support-An-Actor Fund, subsidized through the generosity of our community of theater patrons. These funds are used to help deserving students pay for those occasional expenses and emergencies that cannot be funded through other avenues.
