The West Coast Drama Alumni Community strives to aid students and faculty of the School of Drama in making the learning process one of deep conviction and promise. Our Awards are one of the significant ways we maintain our link with Carnegie Mellon.

The WCDAC Awards are given to deserving undergraduate or undergraduate students of the School of Drama. A special committee of the WCDAC Board of Directors, based on impressions made through this application only, selects winners. In addition, phone interviews with some or all of the applicants and their references may be conducted.
