Each year, the New Line Theatre Scholarship Fund awards a scholarship to one St. Louis metro area high school senior who shows the potential to make outstanding artistic contributions in the musical theatre. This scholarship is available only to high school seniors planning to study musical theatre in college (it does not require majoring in musical theatre). There are no restrictions on the use of these funds.
New Line is not currently offering a scholarship, due to budget constraints. The company hopes to reinstate the scholarship soon. Details will be posted on this page.

In 2011, New Line awarded the scholarship to Patrick Beecher, from the Mary Institute and Saint Louis Country Day School, who attends Northwestern University.
