Students who are interested in participating in the fine arts areas of art, band, choir, creative writing, 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.
|Scholarship Area||Non-Major/Minor||Declared Minor||Declared Major|
|Creative Writing||$500 -$1000||$1250||$2500|
* Students majoring or minoring in music are eligible for a Major/Minor Scholarship in only ONE area (Band or Choir). If the student participates in the second area, they are eligible for an additional non-major/minor award of $500-1,000. Music awards are determined by talent level and the number of music ensembles in which the student participates each semester.
|Requirements to Complete for Talent Scholarships:|
|•||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.|
