Theatre Scholarship

Southwestern Theatre Majors are eligible for the Sarofim Scholarship by auditioning on one of our Audition Workshop days.

Prospective students are encouraged to audition and/or participate in a portfolio review for the Sarofim Scholarship either by submitting online or at our Audition Workshop day. This in-person workshop offers you an in-depth look into the Theatre Department and introduces you to our faculty.

The Audition Workshop and or submission of audition/portfolio review are NOT required in order to major in theatre at Southwestern. Once accepted into Southwestern, any student can become a theatre major if they choose to do so. Candidates that receive the Sarofim Scholarship are eligible for additional assistance, including Southwestern scholarships.

Please note the following: Due to Covid-19,  we encourage you to visit the website often and check your emails from Southwestern and or the Sarofim School of Fine Arts. Requirements and Dates may change.
