Theatre Scholarships


Available Opportunities

The LSU School of Theatre offers several departmental scholarships to incoming freshman and transfer students each year. These scholarships range from $500 to $3,000 per academic year and are renewable, provided the student meets academic requirements set by the School of Theatre.

Merit is the primary factor considered, but financial need and area of study may also be taken into account during the selection process. Please note that these awards are highly competitive and available only to Theatre majors, as there is a limited number available each year.
