Students gather in the forest at Green Oaks, to view art proejcts during Green Oaks Term.

Knox scholarships are designed to recognize your achievements, including special talents in writing, music, theatre, dance, and visual art. You can provide examples of your talents by submitting a portfolio and/or completing an audition.

Auditions and portfolios can be submitted for multiple areas in the arts and are due by the same deadline as your application for admission (see for specific deadlines).

On-campus Auditions or Portfolio Presentations

You can schedule your on-campus audition or portfolio presentation in dance, music, theatre, or theatre design by contacting the Office of Admission at least a week in advance of your visit. You can also request your audition or portfolio presentation online when you schedule your campus visit.

Electronic Submission of Auditions or Portfolios

Auditions and portfolios in art, dance, music, theatre, theatre design, and writing can be submitted electronically through the Portfolio section on your application status page. Your application status page will be available within about 48 hours of submitting your application for admission—we'll send you an email with a link to create a password and access your application status page.

Be sure to review the guidelines on how to prepare for your audition or present your portfolio prior to scheduling your visit or uploading your electronic submission. Applicants are evaluated on the basis of their auditions, portfolios, presentations, and/or manuscripts, as well as their academic records and any other evidence of special ability.

Submission Deadlines
Auditions and portfolios are due by the same deadline as your application for admission (see for specific deadlines).

Candidates are notified of their scholarship awards at the time of admission.

Scholarship Guidelines
Scholarships are renewable annually as long as you remain in good academic standing. Your scholarships must be applied toward the cost of tuition, and the combination of Knox scholarships and grants and federal and state grants cannot exceed the cost of tuition. You may also qualify for additional need-based financial assistance, including grants, work-study, and loans.
