Financial Assistance

The School is committed to fully funding all graduate students accepted into its programs and makes every effort to meet that goal. Assistantships are available for graduate study and are awarded by the TDPS graduate program only after a successful audition and Graduate School acceptance. Competitive support for workshops, conference presentations, summer study and other projects is also available.

In addition to assistantships, there are opportunities for awards and fellowships through the College and University. To read more of the opportunities outside of TDPS offers, please click here.
