Art, Music, and Theater Scholarships

APPLICATION DEADLINE: January 15, 2019*

The College of Saint Benedict and Saint John's University invite students to apply for scholarships recognizing their artistic abilities. To be considered for these scholarships, students must apply and be accepted for admission. All scholarships require a completed application and a recommendation form from someone who knows the student in an artistic capacity.

Art, Music, and Theater Scholarships are awarded to those students with significant experience and success in the arts. These scholarships are not, however, restricted to students majoring in any of these areas. Candidates will be invited to campus based on a pre-screening of materials received by the deadline. Art, Music, and Theater Scholarships range up to $4,000 per year and are renewable based on continued participation and faculty recommendation. Note: For the faculty recommendation, please give the recommender the web link of the recommendation form posted below and have him or her submit the form online by January 15.*

*Please note: Top music applicants will be invited to campus for an in-person audition. For music scholarship applicants able to submit materials prior to January 15, an early music scholarship audition date will be held on December 8.
