Theatre Program Scholarships
Scholarships are provided primarily through the generosity of SCSU Alumni and citizens in the greater St. Cloud community.
The Program awards scholarships to Theatre majors based on scholastic performance and contributions to the program's activities. Students may obtain scholarship application forms in the departmental office. Near the middle of every spring semester the staff reviews the applications and makes awards.
The number and amount of awards varies each year, depending upon the amount of financial aid available, the number of applications received and the merits of the candidates.
The Theatre Endowed Scholarship
This fund provides scholarships to outstanding theatre majors who maintain a 3.0 GPA and make superior contributions to the department’s activities. Emeritus faculty member Dale Swanson established this endowment in 1987. Students may obtain application forms in the departmental office.
The Marge Hams Memorial Scholarship
This scholarship recognizes sophomore, junior or senior level students with an interest in arts education. The Hams family established this scholarship in the name of Marge Hams, a 1970 graduate of SCSU and long-time theatre educator, artist and activist in central Minnesota.
Each year the faculty recognizes outstanding performers and technicians with monetary awards based on performance. These awards are presented at the annual spring banquet.
