Art Scholarships and Portfolio Review

Visual and Performing Arts scholarships are available to students who demonstrate exceptional talent in art. Scholarship amounts are based on an audition/portfolio review, and interested students should contact the Music, Art, or Theatre departments. Students must audition before March 1. Visual and Performing Art scholarships awarded to students who are majoring, or minoring will replace a student’s merit scholarship awarded at the time of admission. Students who are receiving multiple awards should also refer to our stacking policy.

The application for admission to the fall 2021 semester at the University of Mount Union will be available in July 2020. Beginning in early fall of 2020, audition reservation forms for students admitted to the fall 2021 semester will be available. The Visual and Performing Arts Scholarship audition dates for students admitted to the 2021 incoming class are as follows:

  • Saturday, November 15, 2020 (CANCELED)
  • Monday, January 18, 2021
  • Saturday, February 13, 2021
  • Monday, February 15, 2021
  • Saturday, February 20, 2021

To apply for these awards, a visual art portfolio is required and may be submitted digitally to Margo Miller via email to Digital submissions are for your convenience, if you prefer to meet with an Art faculty please feel free to set up an in-person meeting.

You are encouraged to think seriously about your major strength in the area of visual and performing arts. Students are permitted to audition for only one scholarship, as Mount Union offers visual and performing arts scholarships in art, music, theatre, and a blended scholarship for students majoring in both music and theatre.
