UALR Theatre & Dance

The Department of Theatre Arts and Dance offers a broad range of scholarships to students in both areas. A consistent effort is made to assist incoming students and to help students throughout their tenure at UALR. Awards are made with the assistance of the Dean’s Talent Awards, the Friends of the Arts, the Joan R. Taylor Scholarship, the Ike Murry Memorial Scholarship, the Joel Ruminer Scholarship, the David S. Sherman Scholarship, and the Bill and Sharon Arnold Family Foundation Scholarship. Student applications are judged on the basis of academic achievement, participation in the life of the department including the production program, and service to the department.
