Since 1990, New Minowa Players has offered an annual scholarship to students graduating from area high schools. The scholarship is offered to students graduating from a high school within 30 miles of Decorah and to those who will be entering college after a gap year. This extends to home-schooled students in the same region, who have fulfilled the requirements for a high school degree.
The applicant(s) must be planning to attend an accredited college or vocational school. The major criteria for choosing the winner(s) is the student’s involvement in drama and related areas and the intent to continue that involvement in some way following high school graduation. Preference will be given to students who have been or are presently active in New Minowa Players.
Each applicant must complete a Scholarship form and submit a one-page essay describing how their experience in theatre has contributed to their lives. The Scholarship amount is $200. A link to the online form and to a pdf of the form can be found at newminowaplayers.org/scholarships.
