Scholarship Selection Criteria

We value an applicant’s commitment to their education.  With that in mind, the committee will take into consideration all aspects for the applicant’s academic performance to date including grade point average, extra-curricular club participation, honors and awards.  The committee will also take into consideration any unique hardships, obstacles and challenge that students may have overcome in their lives.

Each applicant is required to submit a short essay of up to 600 words in length that addresses the question “what the arts mean to me?”  Each committee member will independently evaluate and score essays based on both technical writing (grammar, syntax) and content.  

The Lancaster Performing Arts Center Foundation believes strongly in the value of community service.  Each application includes a section to highlight those areas of service in the applicant’s life.

The committee may also take into consideration the financial need of applicants in an effort to change the lives of students that otherwise would not have opportunities to pursue an education in performing arts.

Each applicant must submit a sample of his or her talent/skills to the selection committee.

Demonstration and Interview

The committee will review applications and conduct a live audition/demonstration and

interview with selected finalist.

Submit application, essay, letters, work sample(s) (flash drive, YouTube link, etc.)
