Scholarship Information

Thanks for your interest in a Theatre Scholarship at University of Northwestern!

Complete the application form and mail it back to us as soon as possible.  We also ask that you include:

  • A cover letter, along with a recent headshot or snapshot of yourself
  • Any photo or video log of your work you have available. 
  • At least two recommendations on this recommendation form: one from a theatre director or direct supervisor of your work, and a second from another person who is familiar with your theatre work. You may also provide a recommendation from a pastor, youth group leader, music instructor, or teacher.

While scholarship applications are accepted on a rotating basis, the sooner you return the application, the sooner we are able to process it. The first wave of scholarships will be reviewed February 1. The second wave will be reviewed March 1. We'll let you know as soon as all your materials have been submitted, and then contact you again regarding the awarding of scholarships. Please note that scholarship students are expected to participate in UNW Theatre productions in stage managing, acting, set or costume building, set or lighting design, costume design, run crew, or other as needed by the department. If you are not able to meet the conditions of the scholarship, it will be reassigned to someone else.
