Talent Scholarships

Students who are interested in participating in the fine arts areas of art, band, choir, creative writing, piano, and/or theatre have the opportunity to interview and/or audition for a Talent Scholarship. Scholarship amounts are based on talent, level of involvement, and/or intention to declare status as a major or minor in the discipline. Non-majors/minors are encouraged to apply.

Music awards are determined by talent level and the number of music ensembles in which the student participates each semester.

Participants must be admitted to Mount Marty College. This requires the submission of an application for admission, an official high school transcript and an official ACT/SAT transcript. ACT/SAT scores reported directly on an official high school transcript will be accepted.

Questionnaires, resumes and letter of recommendation by a teacher/coach are to be sent in prior to the campus visit for the audition/interview if at all possible. Portfolios for art, creative writing and technical theatre may be brought with the student the day of the interview.
Participants must complete an on-campus audition (band, choir, theatre) or interview (art, creative writing).
