Anyone can apply for the Performing Arts Grant, regardless of major.

These highly competitive grants in amounts up to $2,000 per year are annually awarded to excellent students involved in technical theatre or theatre productions, regardless of their major course of study.


Theatre Performance: Perform two contrasting 3-5-minute monologues and bring a résumé and letter of recommendation from your drama instructor/director. Students who obtain a PAG for theatre productions are involved in acting, directing, stage management and production planning.

Technical Theatre: Present a portfolio of your experience that could include snapshots, playbills, etc., indicating range and level of experience. You should provide one written recommendation. Your audition consists of a personal interview. Students involved in technical theatre learn about and help produce all aspects of theatre design: set construction, lighting design, audio design, props, scenery, etc.
