Theatre Performance and Production Scholarships, valued at $10,000 ($2,500 per year), were created to recognize excellence in theatre and the potential for exceptional contributions to the Concordia community. In order to maintain the award, recipients participate at a significant level as cast or crew members in each main stage and lab theatre production during their time as a Concordia theatre scholar.
To be eligible for a Theatre Scholarship, you must be an incoming first-year or transfer student who has been accepted for admission to Concordia College, have at least a 3.0 cumulative GPA (non-weighted), and have exhibited proficiency in theatre performance or production.
The initial screening will be based on the scholarship application (which includes an essay), two recommendations and a theatrical résumé. The essay topic for your application is: “How do the talents and skills of theatre prepare you for a meaningful life and contribute positively to the world?” Your essay should be minimum of one and a maximum of three double-spaced pages.
If for any reason you are not able to complete the online application, you may request a printed copy. If you are completing the printed application, all materials must be postmarked by Jan. 10, 2014.
