About Wesleyan Encore
Wesleyan Encore was founded in 2002 and is a group of university alumni who participated in theatre productions during their years at Texas Wesleyan. Their goal is to support Theatre Wesleyan by promoting its productions and awarding an annual scholarship to deserving theatre students.
Applicant Eligibility & Receiving Funds
To be eligible, students must be freshmen, sophomore or junior theatre majors in good academic standing and must submit an application to the Wesleyan Encore selection committee. Students will be chosen on the basis of their accomplishments in Theatre and career goals. Financial need is not a consideration in determining the awards. Awards are announced at the Alumni Night at the annual Spring Musical.
Awards are given as above and beyond students’ existing scholarships or other financial aid and are applied directly to the student recipients’ accounts at the University.
Applications are available in the Theatre Business Office, or contact Scott Cannon at firstname.lastname@example.org.
