Scholarships for Incoming Theatre Freshmen or Transfer Students
The Theatre Department awards up to three scholarships for incoming freshman or transfer Theatre Majors . These scholarships, The Encore Theatre Company Theatre Scholarship, and the Friends of Theatre New Talent Award, are one year endowed scholarships. Please refer to scholarship section for more information.
The UWG Theatre Department hosts our annual Presidents' Day Scholarship Program every year on Presidents' Day. In 2020, it will be Monday, February 17. Auditonees should prepare two contrasting monologues no longer than 2 minutes in length combined. If preparing a song, please bring recorded accompaniment with you to the audition (we will not have a live accompanist at the audition). Technical Theatre/Design candidates should prepare a design portfolio.
We also audition for these scholarships at the Georgia Theatre Conference, Georgia Thespian Conference, and Southeastern Theatre Conference. However, we encourage you to attend the Presidents' Day event on campus in order to see what we do, talk to current theatre majors, and take a tour of the campus.
