You may qualify for a Saint Mary’s Performing Arts Scholarship in Dance, Music or Theatre.

Performing Arts Scholarships

Each year Saint Mary’s offers up to $13,000 in tuition­ remission scholarships for demonstrated artistic excellence. Performing Arts is also awarding up to two merit-based full-tuition scholarships for combined artistic and academic excellence. 

These merit­-based awards are available only to incoming first-year students, and are renewable for four years. Recipients must agree to major or minor in the program awarding the scholarship. 

Application Deadline

We will accept applications through February 1, 2022, or until all slots are filled. All scholarship applicants must complete their application to Saint Mary's College by January 15, 2022.
