Performing Arts Scholarship
For Prospective Students
You’re interested in more than just your major. You have a love and a talent for singing, acting, dancing, or playing music. At RIT, we not only hope you’ll continue participating in the performing arts, we absolutely encourage it through the Performing Arts Scholarship.
As a performing arts scholar, you’ll have the opportunity to connect with other students that share your passion for music, theater or dance. Coaches from your discipline regularly organize social events like pizza parties and movie nights where you can get to know other performing arts scholars and talk about new opportunities, as well as participate in excursions to local concerts and plays.

You’ll also find support for your creativity should you be interested in forming a group or ensemble, or writing, directing, or choreographing your own show.
