Susan Tisdall Niven Scholarship Fund

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.A., M.F.A. or Ph.D. programs. The award is to be based on talent, academic achievement during the recipient’s undergraduate career, and a record of active participation in extracurricular activities.
