These scholarships are exclusive to this department, and are offered only during the dates and times listed below.
Worship Arts scholarships will be offered in voice and instrumentation at tryouts beginning at 6 p.m. Wednesday, April 25, in the S.E. Belcher Jr. Chapel and Performance Center on the LETU campus in Longview.
Students auditioning must provide their own accompaniment (iPod, CD, pianist) and will sing (or play) in front of a panel of judges. Students will be free to leave after auditioning their songs. Scholarships will be awarded according to talent and need. Accepted students will be notified when scholarships are awarded. Students who win the scholarships can major in any subject, but will be expected to be involved in the university’s new choir.
The Theology Department will also award scholarships during a preview and scholarship competition from 9 to noon on Saturday, April 28, in Room 104 Health-Hardwick Hall for students interested in pursuing a career in theology, Christian ministry, youth ministry worship arts and biblical studies.
