Auditioning for these scholarships make you eligible for other scholarship awards and need based scholarships as well.
Film your audition using a phone (shoot it horizontally), tablet, computer, camera, etc. and add it to the folder Make sure there is a blank background behind you and the lighting is good. Hang a sheet behind you if you don’t have a blank wall. The entire audition must be in one take: Intro, songs or monologues. However you can re-do it as many times as you want to get it the way you like it.
For accompaniment you may find tracks online using youtube, use the piano trax app, record an accompanist, etc. You MUST have accompaniment with your songs.
But remember, it doesn’t have to be super fancy, you will be adjudicated on your talent NOT your filmmaker skills. Scholarship money is more important then ever right now and we’re hoping this will increase the participation because you can do it anytime between now and April 30, 2021.
Upload your audition to the scholarship auditions folder before May 1st

They will watch all the videos and make their selections based on the criteria of the submissions and not the quality of the recording, so go for it!
Seniors – we will have the interviews on May 1st at 9:30 a.m. We will have the adjudicators in the room via ZOOM to ask you the questions. You will have assigned times, every 10 minutes for a 7-minute interview. You do not have to present beyond your 10-minute interview. If you can’t make that time we will arrange for you to record it
Current students who want to be considered for scholarship or financial support MUST audition.
