Scholarships in the Visual and Performing Arts

Eligibility
The Visual and Performing Arts programs offer scholarships to both students who participate in the program as their major area of interest and to students who have a major area of interest outside of the arts. Most scholarships require the student to enroll in 12 credit hours per semester. All scholarships require the completion of a FAFSA and a CF Financial Aid application. Other qualifying criteria may apply.

Purpose of the Awards
The CF Visual and Performing Arts Grants are intended to strengthen and support the performing arts at the College of Central Florida by offering talented students tuition assistance for participation in our college credit courses.

Award Amounts
Award amounts vary with each student. Students who qualify will be awarded funds which may cover tuition for up to 12 credit hours per academic semester. The CF Office of Financial Aid supervises these student award accounts. Awards are given on a semester basis. A student in good standing who has fulfilled previous award obligations may apply each semester for the award. Please be aware, however, that these awards are competitive.
