Artistic Scholarship contestants are selected in previous auditions and are called to a second audition to compete for any of the available Artistic Scholarships offered by UDLAP through the Cultural Diffusion office. For the guidelines of said scholarship it is necessary to be aware of the call which is published every year around the month of March and is subject to the offer of Scholarships for the current school year. The Artistic Scholarship audition has the same format as the other auditions with the difference that it has an extra component of critical analysis of an academic text related to Dance and the candidates must present a different one than the one they showed in their first audition to be able to evaluate the versatility of the interpreter.
