Susan Tisdall Niven Scholarship
The Susan Tisdall Niven Scholarship was established in 1982 by Jeanne P. Tisdall to honor her daughter, Susan Tisdall Niven. Susan graduated from the Department of Theatre in 1968 and was killed in an automobile accident in 1981 while skiing in Colorado.
The fund is to be used to provide a scholarship to an incoming female graduate student in the M.F.A. or Ph.D. programs as well as in the M.A. program in Theatre. The award is to be based on talent as an actress or potential designer, academic achievement during the recipient’s undergraduate career, and a record of active participation in extracurricular activities.
Contributions to the Susan Tisdall Niven Scholarship Fund may be made via KUEA.
