Application for Graduate Research Support

Cynthia Overton at USITT-Ohio Valley Section ConferenceFunding for Graduate Research Support in the Department of Theatre comes from two sources:

  1. John C. Morrow Memorial Fund: Established June 12, 1980, by his students, colleagues and friends. Income provides research/travel grants for graduate students in the Department of Theatre. (Income from the Introduction to Theatre coursepacket is deposited to this fund.)

  2. Aida Cannarsa Snow Endowment Fund: Established February 7, 2003, from her estate through The Foundation. Income provides need-based scholarships to undergraduates/graduates with a major or specialized interest in the Departments of Art, Art Education, History of Art, Theatre or Dance.

All awards will be disbursed as a scholarship. No travel request will be needed. Awards may be made for both future events and retroactively for events that have already occurred within the funding period. Retroactive funding is not guaranteed, but applying after-the-fact will not factor into the committee's review of the proposal.

  • 1st Monday in October for events from June 1 - February 28
