Each year, the Educational Theatre Association’s awards, grants, and scholarships opportunities honor the achievements of individuals and theatre programs, providing award-winners with the financial support to attend Association events or further educational endeavors.

Awards are presented in recognition of notable accomplishments by individuals or theatre programs.

Grants are one-time financial awards presented to individuals or troupes to attend Association events such as the EdTA National Conference or the International Thespian Festival, or to help support the troupe's theatre program.

National scholarships are presented to students to cover tuition and fees, typically based on a combination of merit and career goals.

Chapter Matching Scholarships are offered by Thespian chapters in partnership with the EdTA National Office, and awarded at chapter events. Visit your chapter website or contact your chapter director for more information.
