Academically qualified Knox applicants with special ability in writing, music, theatre, dance, and visual art may receive scholarships up to $8,000 per year. Students can audition or submit portfolios for more than one scholarship, although awards are typically limited to two areas of the arts.

On-campus Auditions or Portfolio Presentations

You can schedule your on-campus audition or portfolio presentation for scholarships in dance, music, theater, 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

Scholarship auditions and portfolios for art, dance, music, theater, theatre design, and writing can be submitted electronically on your application status page through Portfolio. Your application status page will be available within about 48 hours of submitting your Common Application—we'll send you an e-mail 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 for each type of scholarship 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.

Auditions and portfolios are due by the same deadline as your application for admission (see knox.edu/apply for specific deadlines).


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

General Scholarship Guidelines
Writing and visual and performing arts scholarships are renewable annually as long as recipients remain in good academic standing. 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. Scholarship recipients often qualify for additional need-based financial assistance, including grants, work-study programs, and loans.
