Acting for Film Scholarship Audition Guidelines

In order to apply for the scholarship audition for the Acting for Film One and Two Year Programs or the Acting for Film Bachelor of Fine Arts, Master of Fine Arts and Associate of Fine Arts at the New York Film Academy, all applicants must submit a program application to audition. Applications can be submitted online or you can bring the application to the auditions. There is a $75 application fee required.

Please prepare two contemporary, contrasting monologues of approximately 60- 90 seconds per monologue.
New York Film Academy does not offer full tuition scholarships. The goal of the Audition is to assess the Creative Talent of an individual applicant for a talent based discount of up to $15,000 (USD) per year.


Please do not perform monologues from classical texts, e.g Shakespeare, Chekhov, Ibsen, or original works.

Your monologues must be age appropriate and from a legitimate source material published from film, television, or theatre. We suggest reading as many plays as you can get your hands on. This will help you begin to recognize the structure of a good scene within a play. Playwrights such as Shepard, Shanley, Margulies, LaBute, Rebeck, Mamet, Rapp etc. are a great place to start. Please feel free to contact the admissions office if you have any questions about appropriate material.

We want you to find pieces that excite you. But most importantly, we want you to find monologues and characters that you have a personal connection to. The more connected you are to the character’s circumstances, the more we get to see your talent and personality.

If an "in-person" audition is not possible, applicants may submit an audition on DVD or via private YouTube links. Please make sure your name, the program name and start date for which you are applying is written on the DVD.

An Admissions Representative will contact you shortly after your audition with an admissions decision and instructions for the award applied to your records.

Dance Audition Requirements

An audition is required for admission into the NYFA dance Conservatory program.

*You must wear dance attire that allows the teacher to see your lines (NO oversized T-shirts or sweats).

*You must wear ballet slippers or Soft Jazz shoes and secure your hair away from your face. Please be prepared to learn a short technical dance combination. Also, come prepared to perform a 1 - 2 minute solo to the music of your choice and in whatever dance style you prefer (Jazz, Tap, Theater dance, Ballet, Modern, contemporary, etc.).

Musical Theatre Scholarship Audition Guidelines

In order to apply for the scholarship audition for the One or Two Year Musical Theatre program at the New York Film Academy, all applicants must submit a program application to audition. Applications can be submitted online or you can bring the application to the auditions. There is a $75 application fee required. All grants and scholarships will be awarded based on talent.

All musical theatre applicants must prepare a 60-90 second monologue from a published contemporary American play or screenplay and two short contrasting musical theatre songs.

New York Film Academy does not offer full tuition scholarships. The goal of the Audition is to assess the Creative Talent of an individual applicant for a talent based discount of up to $15,000 (USD) per year.


When auditioning in person, please bring your own accompaniment on CD or iPod for your musical selections. When choosing audition selections, it is important to choose material that is age and type appropriate. It is also important to read the entire play, screenplay or libretto prior to your audition. Applications should be completed online or turned in prior to your audition in order to schedule your audition appointment.

An Admissions Representative will contact you shortly after your audition with an admissions decision.

If an "in-person" audition is not possible, applicants may submit an audition on DVD or via private YouTube links. Please make sure your name, the program name and start date for which you are applying is written on the DVD.

We want you to find pieces that excite you. But most importantly, we want you to find monologues and songs that you have a personal connection to. The more connected you are to the character’s circumstances, the more we get to see your talent and personality.

Portfolio Review Scholarship Guidelines

In order to apply for our portfolio review scholarship for our Bachelor of Fine Arts, Master of Fine Arts or One Year Master of Arts Programs at the New York Film Academy Los Angeles campus, applicants must submit a program application to be eligible for the portfolio review. An Applicant’s Portfolio will not be evaluated without an application.

Applications must be submitted online or they can be filled out at the time of the review. In order to apply, there is a $75 (USD) application fee required. All applications can be submitted www.nyfa.edu/applications.

The Portfolio Review Scholarship is only eligible for those applicants interested in attending a New York Film Academy degree program in our Los Angeles Campus.

What we are looking for in a portfolio: Creative samples are accepted in various stages of development, or as completed work. Examples of work can range from drawings, conceptual illustrations, short films, poetry, short stories, storyboards, designs, photographs, three dimensional models, or digitally generated images. Students may choose to submit a typed screenplay or short story (10 page maximum).

If an "in-person" portfolio review is not possible, applicants may submit a portfolio on DVD or via private YouTube links. Please make sure your name, the program name and start date for which you are applying is written on the DVD.

We encourage you to show us your creative abilities! The portfolio evaluation team is here to help understand who you are as a potential New York Film Academy student.
