Fine Arts Scholarships
The Division of Fine Arts offers scholarships in Art, Music, Musical Theatre and Theatre. If you are interested in applying for a scholarship, please contact the Dr. Keith Defoor, Dean of the Division of Fine Arts.
Art scholarships are granted to students pursuing the Bachelor of Arts degree in Art. The art faculty selects students to receive scholarships based on personal interviews and surveys of student portfolios. Your portfolio should contain examples of your work with emphasis on drawing ability. Other work that shows skills in painting, digital, design and photography may be included. A sketchbook of good drawings is strongly suggested. Portfolios are judged on skill, originality and seriousness of purpose.

Music major scholarships are awarded to students pursuing the Bachelor of Music Education or the Bachelor of Arts degree in Music and are based on the students’ auditions/interviews. For the audition, you are asked to perform two contrasting compositions of your choice. Percussionists should audition on as many different percussion instruments as possible (snare drum, drum set, mallets, timpani). If your repertoire requires an accompaniment, you may bring your own accompanist, use an accompaniment tape or CD (an audio system will be available on-site) or use a Young Harris College staff accompanist. View the YHC Music Student Handbook for further information concerning auditions. To apply and receive more detailed information about music audition requirements, click here
Band and choral scholarships may be granted to non-music majors who are prospective members of the Concert Band, Jazz Band or Choir. These scholarships are awarded to fulfill the needs of the ensembles.
Musical Theatre scholarships are available to students pursuing a BFA in Musical Theatre. Incoming freshmen are selected to receive scholarships based on auditions, diagnostics and interviews. Admission into the BFA Musical Theatre Program is by audition only. Your scholarship audition will double as your program audition.

Theatre performance scholarships are available to incoming students pursuing a Bachelor of Arts degree in Theatre. To apply and receive more detailed information about scholarship audition and interview requirements, click here.
BA THEATRICAL DESIGN AND PRODUCTION
Theatre design and production scholarships are available to incoming students pursuing a Bachelor of Arts degree in Theatre. To apply and receive more detailed information about scholarship audition and interview requirements, click here.
Please note: A student may not double major in two of the fine arts areas (art, music, musical theatre and theatre). Therefore, if you audition in more than one area and are offered multiple scholarships, you may accept only one fine arts scholarship for a major area.
Due to federal regulations, the amount of scholarship aid you receive may vary after submission of all financial aid forms. Please submit your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to Young Harris College as soon as possible.
