Theatre Arts scholarships

The Department of Theatre Arts awards numerous scholarships to incoming students who plan to remain active in theatre at the college. 

Augustana offers two kinds of theatre scholarships: the general Theatre Arts Scholarships and the Judith Katz Memorial Theatre Scholarship

How to audition

Theatre Arts Scholarships

Theatre Arts Scholarships are available up to $2,500, and are awarded to exceptional individuals pursuing performance, technical theatre, playwriting or criticism. All require an on-campus audition or presentation, and are renewable annually provided that the student has participated in at least one production and takes one theatre class each year.  A student does not need to major or minor in theatre to qualify for a Theatre Arts Scholarship.

Theatre Arts Scholarship auditions will be conducted on three Saturdays: Oct. 15 and Nov. 19, 2016, and Jan. 14, 2017.

Judith Katz Memorial Theatre Scholarship

The Judith Katz Memorial Theatre Scholarship is named for fine arts supporter and Augustana alumna Judith Katz. The scholarship is a $16,000 award ($4,000 annually) given to students who will major in theatre arts at Augustana.

Students who apply for but do not receive a Judith Katz Memorial Theatre Arts Scholarship automatically will be considered for a general Theatre Arts Scholarship.

Auditions for a Katz Scholarship will be offered only on Nov. 19, 2017.
