Millions of Scholarships, personalized results

 and get matched to scholarships that are personalized for you.

Although many famous actors and actresses have lucrative careers — making millions of dollars per movie — not everyone who pursues a career in acting or theatre has such monumental success. In fact, many graduates with a BFA in theatre have to continue to work hard to develop their skills, land a job, and continue a career in a very competitive market. That same determination is true for those looking to study theatre in school. While a theatre career can be very rewarding, it can also be extremely expensive! Future actors, playwrights, and directors pursuing a degree may find theatre scholarships from various organizations and colleges.
