While scholarships and awards recognize achievement, they are also vehicles for continued professional and personal growth. Theater Studies strongly supports its majors pursuing internal and external scholarships that will facilitate the kind of training and connection they require for their professional future.
Emory offers a number of internal awards, available only to Emory students. These merit awards provide partial funding for Emory tuition, opportunities to study abroad, volunteer projects in the Atlanta community, and support for graduate study.
Nationally competitive external awards provide varied opportunities for academically outstanding, engaged students to study and/or do research abroad after graduation, to pursue graduate degrees at prestigious universities, and to live and work throughout the world. Many of these awards actively seek candidates from the performing arts.
Theater Studies majors interested in pursuing internal or external awards are strongly encouraged to review two documents: Why Apply and General Preparation; and then contact the Academic Department Administrator and Department Chair. They, along with the major's faculty advisor, will offer support and guidance.
