Talent-Based Scholarships

The School of Theatre Arts and Dance offers a variety of talent scholarship opportunities. In order to be eligible for scholarship consideration, you must be admitted to a program within the School of Theatre Arts and Dance.

If you auditioned at an off-campus festival or conference [such as Colorado ThesCon, CAP United, Unifieds, etc.] you will need to either audition again on-campus or via video submission for scholarship consideration.

If you auditioned on-campus or via video, your program audition served as your talent scholarship audition. You do not need to do anything further

Talent Scholarship Deadline: March 4th, 2023
