Please choose the gray seats to seat your entire party together with no spaces between you. The system will add the gray/COVID seat after your purchase is complete. We encourage all patrons to be vaccinated to help protect our actors and fellow audience members from COVID-19.

Apply for donor-funded scholarships

Monday, January 17th, 2022

Our donor-funded scholarships application is now open for traditional undergraduate students!

By accessing Student Resources in the MyGeorgeFox portal, students can complete just one application with the opportunity to be matched with more than 200 of these scholarships.

Donor-funded scholarships range from $500 to $15,000. Criteria include (but aren’t limited to) background, academic major, financial need, career goals and grade level. Once your application and essay are submitted, you’re put in the running for the scholarships you qualify for. It’s that easy!

If you’re looking for a way to fill the gap for the 2022-23 academic year, this is a great opportunity! While you’re not guaranteed a scholarship, we encourage all eligible students to apply.

Didn’t receive a scholarship last year? Because some scholarships consider grade level, it’s a good idea to complete the application each year you are eligible. You may be qualified for some scholarships you weren’t in previous years.

Deadlines and dates to remember:

  • Feb. 11 – Application closes
  • Feb. 14 – Letters of recommendation due (when applicable)
