Departmental Scholarships

Each year the LSU School of Theatre awards several departmental scholarships to incoming Freshman and Transfer students. These awards range from $500 - $3,000 per academic year and may be eligible for renewal provided the student meets academic requirements as instituted by the School of Theatre. Merit is a primary criterion, but other factors such as financial need and area of study may serve as additional criterion for selection. Scholarships are awarded to Theatre majors only.

Please note that there are a limited number of departmental scholarships available each year, and as a result these awards are highly competitive.
