St. Olaf Theater Scholarships

This page contains information important to the theater scholarship application process. Please read it carefully prior to completing your application.

St. Olaf theater scholarships are merit-based scholarships that are awarded to incoming new students with exceptional theater talent and promise in any area of theater. Students also may qualify for additional need-based aid, in which case the theater scholarship becomes part of the student’s financial aid package.

Awards of up to $6,000 per year are open to theater majors and non-theater majors. These renewable awards require involvement in the production program of the St. Olaf Theater and the recommendation of the theater faculty.
