Your gift to NDSU Performing Arts will support impactful investments in people, programs and equipment. Contributions toward scholarship funds help reduce the financial load to our students allowing them to focus on achieving degrees and moving into positions of leadership throughout the region.


Graduates from the professional and liberal arts programs at NDSU Theatre work regionally and nationally — as performers, technicians and administrators. The Challey School of Music offers degrees through the doctorate in performance and conducting and includes a full slate of undergraduate degrees including performance and music education. Our graduates now populate many of the region's public school and higher education positions.
