In addition to the Niagara University Merit Scholarships, the department of theatre and fine arts offers various scholarship opportunities to prospective and current students.
Incoming freshmen and transfer students declaring theatre as their primary major are eligible to receive a Niagara University Theatre Scholarship. Those students who wish to be considered for one of these scholarships, all of equal value, are required to audition and/or present a portfolio with interview. Entrance auditions and portfolio interviews will serve this dual purpose. The student's financial need and academic profile are taken into consideration as well.
