Scholarship Application

*Our next audition day will be on Saturday, April 14  begining at 10:00 am.  Please email Craig Lee at to sign up for an audition time.


Students can focus on acting or technical theatre (or both). Acting students must audition and interview with TVCC Theatre Department faculty. If you are interested in only technical theatre, you will not need to audition but need to schedule an interview. If you have a portfolio of work you have done in theatre or other related areas (such as art or music), we would like to see it during the interview.
You do not have to be planning to get a bachelor’s degree in theatre to be eligible for a theatre scholarship or admittance into the theatre program. You must, however, be willing to commit to the two-year theatre degree while you are completing the general education courses required for all bachelor’s degrees in the State of Texas.
Students who receive a scholarship will be required to complete the FASFA form before any scholarship awards will be applied.

2. Sign a departmental scholarship contract that outlines the terms of continued scholarship support.
