Rasmussen Scholarship Awards in the Performing Arts - Theatre

THE AWARD
The one-year Rasmussen Theatre Awards provide qualified students with the equivalent of up to 15 credit hours of in-state tuition and fees. These awards, which are also available in music, are renewable for up to four years, provided that the student meets the obligations set forth in his/her award agreement. Applicants need not be Indiana state residents; however, the tuition and fee waiver cannot exceed that of 15 credit hours in-state per semester. Please note: residents of Bullitt, Jefferson, Oldham, Meade and Trimble counties in Kentucky are considered in-state residents.

QUALIFICATIONS
