CCC Advantage and International students are not eligible to receive Talent Scholarships.
Talent scholarships are renewable for up to four years of continuous study at Whittier College provided that the recipient meets the following requirements:
The Talent Scholarship is based on a separate online application process from the Whittier College application. We will match your Talent Scholarship application with your Whittier College record using your email address, so you and your instructor must both input the same email address you used in your Common Application.
For the current year, all music auditions will be conducted online via YouTube.
To submit your video audition, you will copy its link into your application form. Therefore, you must be prepared to submit this video by the application date.
Videos of live public performances or group performances will not be accepted. Treat this exactly as you would a live audition, performing solo or with one accompanist in a private room as though you were performing in front of the audition committee.
There are two deadlines to consider when applying for a Talent Scholarship:
Early Action: January 14
Regular Decision: March 4
You must be a Whittier College applicant to be eligible for these Scholarships. Visit our First-Year or Transfer admission pages for more details about how to apply if you have not done so already.
If you have any questions or concerns, please review the Talent Scholarship FAQ.
