Rupert T. Barber Scholarship

For more than 40 years, Dr. Rupert Barber was synonymous with theatre at Davidson, serving as a one-man department. Beginning with the Class of 2018, a scholarship will be awarded in his honor every four years, helping to ensure our tradition of quality theatre remains constant.

If you demonstrate exceptional talent and passion for theatre, you could be awarded the Rupert T. Barber, Jr. Scholarship. The $5,000 award is offered to one student in the entering class. The next award will be given to a member of the class of 2022.

Application Process

In addition to your application for admission and your scholarship application, submit a statement on the role of theatre in your life, a recommendation from a current theatre mentor, and a portfolio or a monologue video.
