Get the financial help you need

The School of Theatre and Dance offers scholarships that typically pay for 10% to 40% of average in-state full-time tuition. New students apply through the auditions and interviews process, and continuing students re-apply each semester with a brief essay.

Fortunately, a theatre or dance scholarship is only one of many sources of financial aid at SFA. New students that are academically qualified automatically receive a scholarship from the Office of Admissions.

There are many other scholarships available! Whether you’re applying for a scholarship or interested in a grant, loan or work-study program, you’ll need to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid and make sure you meet certain academic and financial requirements. Don’t worry, financial aid isn’t as complicated as it sounds, and we’re here to help you before, during and after the application process. Apply early, as the application deadline for many scholarships is Feb. 1.

Finding an on- or off-campus job

Be sure to apply for work-study, when available. Work-study positions are part-time jobs are federally funded opportunities on-campus designed to help cover costs associated with your educational expenses. If you're interested in the federal work-study program, you will need to answer "yes" to question 31 on your FAFSA. Visit SFA's Applying for Aid page to learn more.

Whether or not you qualify for the federal work-study program, employment opportunities are available in the School of Theatre and Dance and many other places on campus. Students also find off-campus employment through opportunities posted with the Center for Career and Professional Development.
