COLLEGE AND SCHOLARSHIP INFORMATION
The student must have actively participated at districts and be fully qualified to attend State. Scholarship application alone does NOT register the student for State
The competition is keen and applicants must be limited to those who seriously intend to pursue a career in theatre and to those whom you feel have the potential to do so. Florida State Thespians expects these auditions/interviews to give new impetus to theatre educators to present the most outstanding talent they have discovered and trained.
No school will be allowed to send more than 5 seniors to the scholarship auditions.
The student must be a declared theatre major OR registered for theatre classes. Audition only for your priority area. Use other material to demonstrate versatility at call backs.
The student should work with the sponsor in the selection and preparation of the material.
It is the responsibility of the student to complete the audition application correctly and to get the correct endorsements. Incomplete or improperly completed applications will be disqualified, so follow directions carefully.
Students must be currently a member of the International Thespian Society.
Any student found in violation of State Festival rules will automatically forfeit their scholarship.
SENIORS must have a minimum of a 3.0 GPA or 1800 on the SAT or 26 on the ACT at the time of application
A senior student(s) will be awarded this annual Thespian scholarship good for any college or university. Should a student wish to attend a college or university in the State of Florida there will be an additional bonus. The recipient student(s) needs to meet the requirements of the intended school and meet the academic and audition requirements for the scholarship itself. Upon notification, the student should submit the name of the school and any other required information within thirty (30) days of the State Festival. A check for the scholarship amount will be sent, made payable to the student AND the intended school. Failure to meet the requirements or deadlines will result in forfeiture of the scholarship. The scholarship will then be offered to the alternate student(s). This is a non-renewable scholarship.
TEN scholarships will be awarded for $750. An additional sum of $250 will be added to each scholarship should they choose to attend a Florida school.
