Scholarships are awarded by the Theatre Program to a limited number of students each year on the basis of auditions and/or personal interviews. Application forms for new and returning applicants are available online via the TWU Pioneer Scholarship System link on the TWU Financial Aid Scholarships page.
Scholarship recipients are expected to be active participants in the theatre production schedule. Performance emphasis students must audition for all mainstage shows; design/production emphasis students must be available to fill design, management, or running crew positions for all mainstage shows.
Graduate Students have the opportunity to apply for assistantships in the theatre program. There are four Graduate Assistant positions presently – two for technical assistance and two for administrative assistance. Applications and information are located on the Graduate School website.
