You've Got the Talent!

All students, regardless of major/minor are eligible for an art scholarship. Non-majors earn the scholarship by participating in art activities and taking at least one art class per semester. We’d love to arrange a time to view your portfolio, which can include 8-10 original works!

The Hastings College Center for Applied Media Arts offers scholarships for majors and non-majors. Media means everything from opportunities to cover Bronco athletics (live streaming) to producing the campus newspaper to managing a website.

We offer scholarships in:

  • Digital/Web/Graphic Design
  • Media / Journalism,
  • Livestreaming,
  • Photography and
  • Videography.

If media “has you covered,” let us know and we’ll get in touch. Meanwhile, prepare a portfolio of three forms of media projects you have completed (audio/video, photography, web design, writing, etc.).

Hastings College offers numerous sports, from football to volleyball to cheer. Get in touch with our coaches so they know you’re interested in Hastings College. They’ll work with you to discuss opportunities.

Producing four to five full productions a year takes a lot of talented students like you! Theatre majors and minors are eligible for scholarships, but so are those who participate in theatre. “Participate” includes acting on stage, writing original scripts, directing, creating costumes, designing sets and lighting — and more.

Let us know you’re interested in a theatre scholarship at Hastings and we’ll work to set up an audition where you’ll do a 1-2 minute monologue from a play or we’ll assess your other skills.

Whether you love playing in the band or singing in choir, you’ll find music scholarship opportunities at Hastings College! All students who participate in band, choir and other musical activities are eligible. And a great thing about music at Hastings, is that participating fits perfectly into a typical college schedule.

Our speech team is one of the best in the country! Speech, known as forensics in college, is competitive and fun – and helps develop communication skills you’ll use your entire career.
