IRSC Theatre - Scholarship Opportunities

IRSC Fine Arts scholarships support academic and performance achievement and success.   These scholarships provide financial assistance that enable serious Fine Arts students to maximize academic and performance opportunities.   

The Fine Arts Program offers 97 full and partial tuition scholarships each year.  These scholarships recognize achievement and participation in theatre, vocal music, instrumental music, dance, youth theatre, technical theatre (entertainment technology), and theatre management.  In addition, 25 partial housing scholarships are available to tuition scholarship students.  These housing scholarships provide assistance to the Fine Arts Students living in the River Hammock, a student housing facility owned and managed by the IRSC Foundation and located adjacent to the IRSC Ft. Pierce Campus. 

 Part-time instructional Aid and Work-Study positions in the theatre organization, the theatre facilities, and the Box Office are available to eligible and qualified Fine Arts students.   

HOW DO I APPLY FOR THEATRE SCHOLARSHIPS?

Scholarships for PERFORMANCE theatre (Acting) require a prepared audition with David Moberg.  Scholarships for technical theatre, entertainment technology, and theatre management require an interview with Jon Moses. 

All auditions and interviews may be scheduled by contacting Rebecca Shearer at 772- 462-7727 or David Moberg at dmoberg@irsc.edu.

WHAT DO I BRING TO AUDITIONS/INTERVIEWS?

Two Minute Memorized Monologue (Contemporary Material)

Two Letters of Reference

Official or Unofficial transcript from High school or college

Resume (Acting) Portfolio (technical) or pictures of previous technical work

WHEN ARE THE SCHOLARSHIPS AWARDED?

Scholarship awards are on-going throughout the year.  New scholarship awards are granted each semester.

WHO CAN APPLY FOR THEATRE SCHOLARSHIPS?

IRSC accepts scholarship applications from students studying in any college discipline, however, priority consideration will be given to students who are pursuing a major in the Fine Arts.

HOW MUCH MONEY IS AWARDED?

The specific number of credits that each Fine Arts scholarship student will be determined by the student’s past academic record and specific degree requirements.  Partial tuition scholarships may be awarded for any part of the student’s semester tuition.  Partial tuition scholarships are usually awarded to non-Fine Arts majors who are actively participating in Fine Arts productions and activities. 

WHAT IS NOT COVERED BY THE SCHOLARSHIP?

Fine Arts tuition scholarships DO NOT pay for text books or lab fees.  The Fine Arts Department does however maintain a very limited collection of textbooks for selected Fine Arts classes that are available for student use.  These are available on a first come/first serve basis to scholarship students.

HOW TO APPLY FOR HOUSING SCHOLARSHIP

Partial housing scholarships to the River Hammock are awarded after the tuition scholarship.  Ask David Moberg to be considered for housing scholarship during your audition or interview.  Priority consideration for housing scholarship is given to those students who live the greatest distance from the campus and who have the greatest number of performance or technical theatre commitments. 

Fine Arts Scholarship Guidelines

Fine Arts scholarship recipients are subject to very specific and binding guidelines that govern the student’s academic, personal, and employment, and social/family commitments.   

These guidelines insure that the professionalism of the performing arts and the integrity of the Fine Arts Program and the College will be established and maintained. 

Scholarship applicants are encouraged to read these guidelines carefully.  Scholarship recipients will be required to sign affidavit acknowledging an understanding of these guidelines and pledging full compliance with these guidelines.  Failure to comply with these guidelines will result in the student’s immediate removal from Fine Arts Tuition and Housing Scholarship and all performance and/or production assignments. 

Please note: The College reserves the right to change, amend, and/or add specific scholarship rules, regulations, and requirements at any time without notice or obligation.
