There was a series of events while applying to schools that ended with me coming here on a whim for the last preview of the summer. It turned out to be a perfect fit. In its own way, Mount Union chose me.
Theatre Scholarship Award Auditions
Theatre Scholarship Awards are given to musical theatre and non-musical theatre performers, designers, and technicians who demonstrate talent in their area of interest. These awards typically range from $1,000 to $5,000 per year and are eight-semester renewable awards based upon meeting the terms set by the faculty.
To compete for these awards, performers will present an audition, and designers and technicians will present their portfolio for review. Students with multiple areas of interest may compete as performers and designers / technicians. All students competing for a scholarship will interview with the theatre faculty. Auditions and reviews for these awards are open to both theatre majors and non-majors who have been admitted to the University.
All awards are talent-based and offered regardless of financial need.
We encourage you to think seriously about your major strength in the area of visual and performing arts. Students are permitted to audition for only one scholarship. Mount Union offers visual and performing arts scholarships in art, music and theatre.
