Art, Music, and Theater Scholarships

Application deadline: January 5, 2015

Please note:
Late applicants will still be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. However, once a student has received their need-based financial aid award, they can no longer apply for additional CSB/SJU scholarships. 

The College of Saint Benedict and Saint John's University invite students to apply for scholarships recognizing their artistic abilities. To be considered for these scholarships, students must apply and be accepted for admission. All scholarships require a completed application and a recommendation form from someone who knows the student in an artistic capacity.

Art, Music, and Theater Scholarships are awarded to those students with significant experience and success in the arts. These scholarships are not, however, restricted to students majoring in any of these areas. Candidates will be invited to campus based on a pre-screening of materials received by the deadline. Art, Music, and Theater Scholarships range up to $4,000 per year and are renewable based on continued participation and faculty recommendation. Note: For the faculty recommendation, please give the recommender the web link of the recommendation form posted below and have him or her submit the form electronically by January 5.
