Scholarships

Albion College Theatre Scholarships are intended to support a well-rounded study of theatre for talented and qualified students. Scholarships are granted on the basis of perceived ability and promise.

All applicants will be considered who demonstrate the requisite talent and potential for development in any area of theatre study: acting, directing, playwriting, stage management, or costume, scenic, lighting, or sound design. After acceptance by Albion College, a candidate should submit the Fine Arts Interest Form which will serve as an application for the Theatre Activity Scholarship. After screening, qualified candidates will be invited to submit an audition or schedule a portfolio review with Theatre Department faculty members.

Scholarship Applications

Scholarship auditions and requests for portfolio reviews will be accepted beginning October 1 of a student’s senior year.

Please prepare two contrasting monologues from published plays OR one monologue and 16-32 bars of a song. Your total audition should not exceed four minutes.

So for designers it’d say, “Students with experience in Scenic, Costume, Lighting, or Sound Design will be asked to present a representative sample of their design work during an interview session. Unrealized designs are welcome.

Students with experience in Stage Management will be asked to interview with Theatre faculty. Please be prepared to share any materials that will help tell the story of your experience as a stage manager. Call books, reports, production photos, and video content are welcome.

You will be asked to submit a representative sample of your writing in advance of your interview with Theatre faculty. You are welcome to submit as many scripts as you wish, but quality is valued over quantity.
