Laurel Scholarship

The theatre department at Western Oregon University offers up to five Laurel Scholarships to incoming freshman or transfer students each year.  These scholarships are $1,000 recurring gifts for up to four years.


Laurel Scholarships in theatre are only offered to students enrolled as theatre majors.  A minimum GPA of  3.00 is required to earn and maintain the scholarship.


Actors interested in applying for a Laurel Scholarship will be asked to prepare a short resume and present an audition consisting of two contrasting monologues (not to exceed three minutes total time).  The audition will be followed by a short interview.


Technical Theatre, Design, Stage Management and Theatre Generalists will be asked to prepare a short resume and provide any supporting materials they may have in their particular area of emphasis.  A 10 – 15 minute interview will be conducted with the candidate.


To apply for and schedule a Laurel Scholarship interview, students should contact theatre professor Scott Grim at .
