Fordham University Theatre

Hi! My daughter recently auditioned at Fordham University and really enjoyed her experience- more than I wanted her to, given that Fordham is a competitive academic school and very expensive. Would any merit money come from her audition? I was informed that the theatre department has a say on her admission. Fordham Lincoln Center is beautiful and has a wonderful theatre program, but I have to think practically in terms of money.

    Post your question on the theater-drama majors board--you'll most likely find folks there who can answer your questions.

    For most auditioned BFA programs, the process involves getting admitted to the university and getting accepted into the acting/theater program.

    This is what I found on their scholarship page:

    Fordham Theatre Scholarship

    The Fordham Theatre Scholarship is awarded to students based on both talent and financial need. All entering freshmen candidates for admission who are theatre majors are considered for the scholarship.

    If the student meets the academic and talent criteria, the theatre scholarship can range from $7,000 to full tuition minus any other tuition specific aid for courses taken as a traditional undergraduate student at Fordham.

    To renew the award, students must annually complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and maintain full-time status, satisfactory academic progress, a 3.0 cumulative GPA, and compliance with the University's policies and Code of Conduct. The student must also continue to be a theatre major.

    @collegeadmiss I appreciated reading your information about Fordham. Would you mind sharing any info, if you know it, about your son's audition experience or what type of questions they might ask in the audition? My daughter will be auditioning at Chicago Unified. Thanks.

    My daughter had a wonderful experience auditioning on-campus. The professors briefly asked her about her monologue choice, but they did not extensively interview her. She also received a full tour of the campus and was able to talk with current students about student life.
