Fine Arts & Communication Scholarships


You can receive funding for college while gaining valuable experience through our scholarships!  Activity scholarships are available that pay for in-state tuition and provide a textbook allowance. Each department has different requirements for their audition and interview process.  It is possible to audition for multiple departments, though you can only accept one scholarship.  To learn how to prepare for your audition or interview, select from the appropriate department in the "Pages in Fine Arts & Communication Scholarships" navigation list.

You are not required to major in the field for which the scholarship is granted.
