|Thomas Marshall Graduate Student Awards|
Each year the American Society for Theatre Research awards three grants of $800 each in honor of the late Thomas F. Marshall, a distinguished theatre scholar and founder of ASTR, who took particular interest in the encouragement and support of promising students in the field of theatre research. The purpose of the grants is to encourage students to become active members of the Society by helping them to meet the expenses of attending the ASTR annual meeting in November. ASTR conference registration fees will be waived for grant winners.
Any student majoring in theatre/performance studies in any academic department at any level of higher education is eligible. Students need not be members of ASTR at the time of application.

Note: In the event that a person is chosen to receive more than one award to help defray the costs of attending the ASTR conference, that person will receive the money associated with the larger of the two awards but will be acknowledged as a winner of both. The relevant awards committees shall have the right to disburse monies unspent by the award recipient to support additional worthy applicants.
