DEI Production Fellowship

The Theater Arts DEI Production Fellowships are designed to provide greater accessibility for  participating in Theater Arts productions for students with demonstrated high financial need.

The DEI Production Fellowships will be awarded based on significant, demonstrated financial need and a plan for how the assistance will further students' learning goals. Students may perform, design, work in stage management and/or technical theater in order to qualify. The fellowships do not apply to senior theses, senior projects and practicum students.
