Fine Arts Scholarship Application

This application is for those looking to enroll at USF in the coming year (i.e. high school seniors and transfer students) who would like audition for a fine arts scholarship(s). Scholarship Auditions are held from September 1-March 1. Scholarship Applications are due two weeks prior to requested audition date.

If you are a high school sophomore or junior, you do not need to audition until your senior year. Until then, you can simply tell us about yourself by filling out our Fine Arts Questionnaire.

At USF you do not have to be a music or theatre major or minor to be considered for a performance scholarship. You do have to be an art major or minor to be considered for an art scholarship. The information you provide below will be delivered to the faculty members in your interest areas and our admissions office.
