Music and Theatre Scholarship Information

  • Important information about the SCC Music and Theatre Scholarship

    This tuition/remission scholarship was established to show strong support of our music and theatre programs and to encourage talented and committed music and theatre students to participate in choir or theatre for a season. This scholarship will pay for three-fourths tuition for up to 25 music and/or theatre students who commit to give their best to classes and performances for three consecutive quarters (Fall, Winter and Spring).

    Scholarship criteria:

    1. The scholarship will be awarded in three quarterly installments of up to $500 each. (deposited into the student’s account)
    2. The scholarship will pay for approximately 9 credit hours per quarter.
    3. Recipients are required to maintain full-time status (at least 12 hours/quarter), be in good academic standing during the quarters they are awarded the scholarship, and agree to participate fully. This includes attending rehearsals, participating in performances, learning and memorizing music and lines, and purchasing required dress clothing for performances for the entire season (October through June).
    4. Scholarship recipients must be enrolled in a Southeast Community College Program of Study and agree to make their rehearsals and performances a top priority.
    5. Students are further required to maintain a C+ cumulative grade-point average in order to continue to receive the scholarship.
    6. Students who successfully fulfill their scholarship responsibilities may re-apply for a second year.

    Failure to comply with any of these rules will result in appropriate disciplinary action, up to and including the loss of scholarship funding for one or both of the remaining quarters. Determinations will be made by the music director, Humanities Department co-chairs, and the dean of the Arts and Sciences Division, in collaboration with the offices of Financial Aid and Student Services.

    We encourage interested and qualified students to apply for this scholarship early since awards will be made on a first-come, first-served basis.

    Application period: Feb. 1 through August 1
