Every year gracious donors, dedicated to theater arts education, grant scholarships for outstanding students participating in the Shuler Awards®. Scholarships are traditionally valued between $500-$5,000, but there is no limit on an amount. The Shuler Scholarship Committee thoroughly reviews all applications and selects the recipients. Shuler scholarships are awarded during the nomination announcements at the end of March.
