Awards are achieved by audition and/or interview, and are available in both the performance (acting) and the production (scenic, lighting, costume, and stage management) areas.

Talent scholarships are designed as four-year awards for theatre majors. In order to ensure the continuation of the stipend, a student must stay in residence for four consecutive years at Wayne State University, maintain a 2.5 grade point average and be a visible part of the theatre program. Failure to meet any of these requirements may result in termination of the scholarship.
