Creative students can apply for talent-based scholarships

Thursday, September 29, 2011
You know you will require financial assistance to help you pay for college. However, you don’t think you qualify for a scholarship because academically you’re an average student. But, if you have always excelled in classes where you could display your creativity, you may want to consider applying for talent-based scholarships at schools that offer visual or performing arts programs.

What makes these scholarships different from academic merit scholarships is the fact that your talents in a specific artistic field come into play in the decision process. To be considered for these awards, you will be required to submit evidence of your creative accomplishments.

For example, if you are seeking a scholarship to help you earn a degree in art or design, you will typically provide a portfolio that includes the best examples of the paintings, drawings or sculptures you have created. If you are too close to your own work or unsure of what to include, ask your teachers and peers for their input. Make sure you leave ample time to shoot photographs, arrange slides or compile a CD for your portfolio.

If you hope to receive financial assistance for a theater or drama program, you will typically be asked to audition. The same is usually true for students who apply for a scholarship for music. Some scholarship programs also accept audio or video recordings of past performances, so make sure these materials are of a high quality to leave the best impression.ADNFCR-16000756-ID-800607933-ADNFCR - helping you find colleges and universities that offer the accredited programs that most interest you.
