Conditions of Eligibility

Conditions of Competition

The student should submit the following:

  1. Application
  2. A current resume of your theatrical experience resume
  3. A personal essay addressing your main interests in the theatre arts and why you are the perfect candidate for program at Carroll University. Essays must be 700-750 words, typed and double spaced, with one-inch margins on all four sides of the page, using a 12-point Times New Roman or equivalent font.

For priority consideration, application materials must be received no later than February 15, 2021. Materials received after February 15 will be considered based on available funds.

Theatre faculty will review the completed application, resume and essay. If qualified, an award amount of $1,000 will be assigned by the theatre faculty and the student will be notified of acceptance. A student majoring in music and theatre arts may be asked to select an award from only one of the programs, although dual study programs are encouraged. The student elects the grant amount from the program with the major or the program that offers the greater amount of grant assistance.

For returning students, renewal of the theatre arts award is based upon continued theatre major study at Carroll and a suitable record of activity and service as determined by theatre faculty.
