Dept Deadline Friday March 27th

All,

REMEMBER the Department Deadline is Friday March 27th. All Honors Thesis, Senior Practicum and Student Rep applications are due on this date. For more information on completing these applications see the Department Handbook.

ACTIVITY GRANT applications are also due on this date. If you are currently receiving an Activity Grant and wish to continue to receive the grant you MUST fill out an application. There is no automatic renewal of grants. If you do not re-apply, you will lose your funds. Freshman are encouraged to apply.

When applying, your work for the CALENDAR YEAR 2014 is what counts, not the academic year. Anything work done in this semester goes towards next years application. Additionally, only volunteer work for department activities is considered (volunteer crew hours, admission days, high-school Shakespeare days, proctoring auditions). Work for clubs, regular crew work or casting, or any paid work does not count towards activity grant hours.

The Department Handbook that outlines the guidelines for all applications and all of the application forms can be found at poowabah.info here: http://poowabah.info/drama-department-documents/
