  • Open to students who are pursuing a degree from the School of Visual & Performing Arts.
  • Applicants must have a high school G.P.A. of 2.5 or higher.
  • Recipients must enroll and successfully complete at least 15 hours of course credit each semester and actively participate in Theatre & Dance productions.
