Your investment of time, energy and money into your college education returns much more than a degree. It provides you with a set of opportunities, friendships, experiences and professional relationships that will help shape your life. We believe that students should choose a school that offers the best educational fit in the combination of faculty, curriculum and environment for their individual goals. The University of Memphis, as well as the Department of Theatre & Dance, along with generous community supporters, provides a wide array of financial assistance to help students meet the financial burden of a Memphis education.

Undergraduate financial assistance at the University of Memphis takes two forms: scholarships based on either academic or performance excellence, and need-based aid.

Scholarships are available both from the University and the Department of Theatre & Dance. Generally, University scholarship support is provided based on academic potential as demonstrated in a student’s admission application.

The Department of Theatre & Dance offers competitive performance and technical scholarships based on a student’s audition or interview. All applicants are automatically considered for scholarships that range from several thousand dollars a year to full tuition and, generous support from local donors ensures that several major awards are available in each year.

In addition to scholarships all students are encouraged to apply for need-based aid through the University. Through the need-based program other funding in the form of state or federal grant (free-money) programs and federal student loan programs may be available to students based on their specific financial circumstances.
