Incoming Student Scholarships

Incoming Student Theatre Scholarships

Students are welcome to schedule an audition or interview during an individual weekday visit to campus or during select group visit events, listed on our Scholarship Audition Dates. Students may audition or interview before completing Luther's application process, but scholarships will not be awarded until after a student has been admitted to Luther.

Please check the requirements (listed below) and complete the Recruit Me for Theatre form before scheduling an audition.

If you have any questions about scheduling your theatre audition/portfolio review, please contact the Admissions Office. You can also view our Frequently Asked Questions about the Luther College theatre scholarship audition process.

The theatre faculty requires scholarship candidates to arrange an audition or interview through the Admissions Office prior to the March deadline each year (March 15, 2019).
