The arts are an important part of a liberal arts education. FPU offers two types of Theater scholarships to encourage participation: (1) the Drama Scholarship, with an emphasis on Acting, Stage Managing, or Technical Theater, and (2) the Religious Drama Team scholarship, for those interested in church performance/drama ministry. All Theater department scholarships are participation-based.
