Fine Arts Scholarships

Scholarships available in visual arts, vocal, instrumental and theatre.

Who can apply 
Accepted first-year students who have a 3.0 cumulative high school GPA and wish to participate in the university’s Art, Music, or Theatre programs. The scholarships are renewable for four consecutive years or until a bachelor’s degree is achieved—whichever comes first. The recipient must maintain a minimum 2.80 cumulative GPA and remain a member in-good-standing in a Fine Arts program.

  • Art Program Scholarship: Applicants are required to submit a portfolio of their work. This should include a representative selection of work that demonstrates their particular strengths in any media (10-15 pieces). An artist statement is also encouraged and can be included as part of the application. The art program scholarships require the student to remain a member in good standing in the Art program each semester. The commitment will include work with the Benedum Fine Arts Gallery and other contracted work with the director of the Art program.
  • Music Program Scholarship: Applicants are required to demonstrate proficiency as a vocalist or instrumentalist through an audition process. Applicants must audition on two prepared music selections of differing styles, one technical and one lyrical; for vocalists, one foreign language piece and one English piece is preferred. The music program scholarships require the student to remain a member in good standing in one of the larger ensembles each semester and other contracted work with the director of the Music program.
  • Theatre Program Scholarship: Applicants are required to submit a resume of their theatrical experience and demonstrate acting proficiency through an audition of two memorized 60-second monologues of differing styles, one comic and one dramatic. The theatre scholarships require the student to remain a member in good standing of the cast and crew for the main stage production each semester and other contracted work with the director of the Theatre program.
