Support Theatre Scholarships

In addition to the Charles L. Hayes Visiting Artist Endowment, the Department of Theatre proudly announces the establishment of two new giving opportunities: the Kathleen Harvey Harshberger Endowed Scholarship and the Carl Lefko and Monica Weinzapfel Endowed Travel Scholarship. We encourage you to consider making a contribution to the fund that best matches your giving goals. The department is sincerely appreciative for all of the support our patrons continue to show for student success.

Charles L. Hayes Visiting Artist Endowment:

Funds earned from the endowment are used to support the Theatre Visiting Artist initiative which brings guest actors, directors, designers, playwrights and other artists to campus to work closely with students.  Whether through masterclasses, workshops or production work these professionals provide invaluable experiential opportunities along with exposure to the professional entertainment industry.  

Kathleen Harvey Harshberger Endowed Scholarship:

This endowed scholarship is awarded to an incoming freshman Theatre major with an emphasis in performance.  The scholarship may be renewed for a maximum of three years based on the student’s academic standing and progress in the performance program.

Carl H. Lefko and Monica Weinzapfel Endowed Travel Scholarship:

This endowed scholarship is awarded to one or more students each year for travel to regional and national professional conferences. The scholarship supports student participation in auditions, design competitions and searches for internships and/or employment.
