The University of the Incarnate Word awards
Theatre Arts scholarships ranging from $500 – $4,000. The Department of Theatre Arts awards these scholarships on the basis of the student’s audition and/or portfolio. Of course, prospective students must apply and be accepted into the university to claim any scholarship award. Graduating high school students with a minimum 
2.5 GPA or college students with a minimum
2.5 GPA may compete for a scholarship.

How to Compete for a Theatre Arts Scholarship

LOCATION

      • UIW Theatre faculty typically attend
        the annual Texas Educational
        Theatre Association
         conference, the Greater San Antonio auditions, and North Texas auditions, to recruit students. Students who wish to compete for scholarships may also make an individual appointment to audition on the UIW campus.

REQUIREMENTS

      • Each applicant must submit a resume, photo (non-returnable), and two letters of recommendation at the audition.
      • Student performers should present two contrasting monologues (comic/serious, classical/contemporary). The maximum time allowed for the presentation of these two monologues is four minutes.
      • Students interested in Theatre Design/Technology should present a portfolio of their artwork, previous designs, representations of Theatre Technology products, and any
        other Design Technology related work.
      • If distance is a problem, student performers may submit an unedited videoed audition
        of your two monologues. DVD format is preferred. Similarly, students interested in Design/Technology may send us their portfolio by mail, using UPS and providing appropriate insurance and a tracking number to assure safe and timely delivery.
