Theatre Scholarships

The Department of Theatre offers generous merit-based tuition waiver scholarships to new students in the BFA program.  Tuition scholarships are valued at $1,000 to $9,000 and are awarded for 1 to 4 years.   These awards are intended to sustain a strong and diverse ensemble of emerging theatre artists at Marshall and to support promising students who have identified the entertainment industry as a career goal.   This scholarship cannot be applied to books, fees, housing, travel, on-line courses or summer session tuition.   All offers are subject to official acceptance to the university and final review by the Office of Student Financial Assistance.

There are two types of new student scholarships available.  The one that applies to you depends on where you live.
