SCHOLARSHIPS

OMTI believes that cost shouldn't be a barrier to the arts and has proudly offered scholarships to its students since its inception. Because OMTI is a nonprofit organization, we only have a limited amount of scholarships we can give for each production. However, we encourage all students who qualify to apply below.

Scholarship decisions are made by OMTI based on confluence of the need and merit of each individual student. OMTI does not discriminate on the basis of race, creed, color, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender, gender expression, age, height, weight, physical or mental ability, veteran status, military obligations, and marital status.

Scholarship decisions are made during the audition process and individual offers are made with the announcement of our cast. 

SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION

The below application applies only to the production of OMTI's Heathers: The Musical and no other OMTI or OMTI-affiliated production. All applications must be submitted before Saturday, March 7 at 11:59 PM EST. No late submissions will be accepted. All applicants will be notified of their status in conjunction with casting offers for OMTI's Heathers.

Select the scholarship(s) in which you are applying:
Does your family receive any income, food, health, education, or armed forces benefits?
Will receiving a scholarship affect your ability to perform in this production?
I am financially supported by at least one parent/guardian.
