The Theatre Department at Emory & Henry College awards a number of four-year scholarships to promising young theatre students.

We offer scholarship opportunities through auditions or portfolio reviews. The Theatre Department hosts open houses throughout the year where potential students can experience a day in the life of a theatre student and meet with the faculty to share their audition or portfolio. Rolling auditions can be arranged to be submitted via a digital package with videos and/or portfolios.
