Resources & Opportunities

The Theatre Department at Emory & Henry College awards a number of four-year scholarships to promising young theatre students.

We offer scholarship opportunities through auditions. The Theatre Department hosts scholarship day auditions yearly. Rolling auditions can be submitted via a digital package with videos and/or portfolios.

Contact the Office of Admissions for more information about applying for theatre scholarships.


Theatre Scholarship Audition / Interview

Scholarships are awarded by audition and/or interview, and are available both for performance (acting, directing, musical theatre), and for production (scenic, lighting, costume, stage management, art management, and make-up design). Applicants must be invited to present a scholarship audition/interview. Scholarship auditions/interviews may be presented during a scheduled Scholarship Day or during a regularly scheduled visit to the college.

All prospective scholarship and BFA students will be asked to:

  • supply a headshot and resume

In addition, the following are specific requirements for each BFA/Scholarship track.

Additionally please be prepared to answer questions from the following list (questions may vary):

  • Why theatre?
  • What influences you as an artist?
  • If you were not in the Theatre what other career choice would you make?
