Each year, the JSU drama department awards thousands of dollars in scholarships to talented, hard-working drama students. Scholarships are awarded through an application process that includes auditions or interviews. Students must also demonstrate a commitment to JSU productions and high academic standards.



Once a scholarship is awarded, students must meet the following criteria:

  • Have and maintain a grade point average of 2.5 per term, 2.5 overall, and 3.0 in Drama courses.
  • Be a declared Drama major.
  • Make a contribution (either on or back stage) to each production during the term. Scholarship work and cast assignments are made and announced at the beginning of each semester.
  • Attend all department work calls, strikes and tech prep days.
  • Be enrolled in at least one drama course per term.
  • Be a full-time (12-hour load minimum) JSU student.
  • Have a maximum of three (3) absences in drama-related major courses.
