Alumni, faculty, and friends have established a variety of awards to recognize and support deserving students of our department. These awards are given at the discretion of an award advisory committee and the department chairperson, who solicit and review nominations each year.
Beginning Spring semester 2019, students are encouraged to apply for The Department of Theatre, Drama and Contemporary Dance scholarships and awards, which will be presented at Drama Prom in April of 2019. Faculty nominations will continue to be solicited as well. Members of the Awards and Scholarships Committee are committed to developing a comprehensive pool of qualified candidates for these prestigious awards, and look forward to receiving a large number of student applications.
Any currently enrolled full-time student who is a major, minor, or graduate in the Department may apply.
Please read the Application and complete it fully, including the two required attachments. Instructions and Deadline for submission are included on the Application form.
