Scholarship fund


Each year, the Educational Theatre Association and its chapters honor the achievements of Thespians by providing financial support to further their educational goals. More than $200,000 is awarded in merit scholarship funds to college-bound theatre students intending to major in communication, the performing arts, or technical theatre. EdTA also awards merit-based scholarships to junior and seniors majoring in theatre education and who will soon join the ranks of EdTA’s professional members as dedicated teachers in middle or high school theatre programs. Scholarship are usually awarded based on a combination of academic merit, financial need and personal attributes, including Thespian troupe involvement, leadership ability, work ethic, teamwork, strong character, and experience in different aspects of theatre.
