The competition is by invitation only. To be considered for an invitation, students must submit a completed application for admission and be accepted no later than Monday, January 21, 2013. The Admissions Office and members of the E&H faculty will extend invitations to prospective students for each of the programs listed above. Students who are selected to attend Scholarship Day will be notified by the Admissions Office well in advance of Feb. 23 to ensure adequate time to prepare for their audition, portfolio review or interview.

In general, students invited for a portfolio review or audition for Art, Music or Theatre will have demonstrated significant interest, talent and achievement in the relevant creative field.
