Scholarship Day

By invite only

Twice a year, many of our most talented and high-achieving prospective students are invited to visit campus for Scholarship Day. Families are welcome and encouraged to attend.


The day’s events will begin at 8:30 a.m. and will include a luncheon from 12:30-1:30 p.m. With the exception of the Bjorling Music and Anderson Theatre/Dance scholarships, the Scholarship Day events will conclude by 2:00 p.m. The day will feature a schedule of guest speakers, student and staff-led informational sessions, auditions and interviews. Each candidate will have a unique schedule tailored to the events and activities related to each of the various competitions. Students will pick up their personalized schedules upon check-in on Scholarship Day.
