A limited number of need-based scholarships are available to help cover tuition costs.   For scholarship consideration, the parents or guardians of the child in question need to send a request letter with the teen's name and age, and a copy of the first 2 pages of their 1040 Tax Return for 2021 to the WVU School of Theatre and Dance Administrative Associate, Brenda Hamilton at brenda.hamilton@mail.wvu.edu


Please note that scholarships cover tuition only, as housing costs are paid directly to Campus Housing.  Students on a scholarship can bring a lunch from home and get picked up each evening, but are encouraged to sign up for a dinner plan.
