The Department of Theatre has many scholarships available for next year.

Incoming Freshmen and Incoming Transfer Students:

The Brakebill Scholarship is a non-renewing scholarship specifically for incoming theatre students.  The dollar amount of the scholarship can range between $500 – $2000.  While this scholarship does not renew, there are many other department scholarships that students can apply for once they are on campus.  Most theatre students who apply for department scholarships receive some level of financial aid.  Receiving this scholarship does not impact on a student’s eligibility to receive other University aid.
