Performing Arts Scholarships
Performing Arts Scholarships
We invite you to audition for one of our scholarship awards. Performance scholarships are available to students in any major, not just Department of Performing Arts' majors. Many auditions are held during Accepted Students Days in February, March and April, 2014. You should check below for specific information for each performance area. If you are unable to attend one of these audition dates, individual audition times can usually be arranged for theatre and with each ensemble director in music. The cutoff date for scholarship auditions for the 2014-2015 academic year is April 22, 2014.

- Details: Each year the theatre faculty awards a limited number of performance, administrative and technical scholarships to highly motivated and dedicated students to work in the Theatre Program. Scholarships are awarded to students on their ability and level of commitment to the theater program productions. The theater program at Drexel is run as if it was a professional theater company and the scholarship students are the members of the ensemble. That means that members play a leadership role on each of the three Mainstage or three intimate studio productions. Scholarships are based on an evaluation of students' work and an interview with theater faculty during accepted student days.
