Scholarships for Current Students

Theatre & Dance Department Scholarships

The Department of Theatre & Dance offers a number of scholarships.  The amount of an individual award can vary from $100 to over $1,000.  These awards are given to currently enrolled students majoring in the Department of Theatre & Dance.  (Incoming students should apply for the Potter College Creative Arts Scholarship.)

 Applicants must have a current TopDollar application on file.  The department's online application is due in mid-February and the department faculty select the recipients in March.  Rather than applying for any specific scholarships listed below, this is a general application for support.  The department faculty then choose the appropriate fund for each student selected.  See the application for further details.
