Academic Programs

Theater Scholarships

Students may compete for awards of up to $20,000 ($5,000 per year). These scholarships are available for non-majors, majors, and minors, and may be combined with other academic awards. Applicants must be admitted to the university before being considered for fine arts scholarships.

Theater scholarships are open to acting and stage production students. They require participation in one major production per year.

The application deadline for fine arts scholarships is February 1.
Auditions and interviews are held each February.

Please contact Sully White, assistant professor of theater and program director, at (859) 233-8623 or for additional details concerning auditions or interviews for fine arts scholarships.


During Fine Arts Audition Days, applicants and their families will have the opportunity to take a campus tour, eat lunch with faculty, sit in on a faculty showcase concert, and attend a session on scholarships and financial aid. Our goal is to give you a holistic experience during your visit.

Schedule an audition on Saturday, February 21, 2015.
