Students must submit a separate Linehan Artist Scholars application to be considered as a candidate for the program. The application and all supplemental materials must be received by January 15.
To schedule your Audition or Portfolio Review, please go to the Scholarship Day Registration Form.

Directions and Parking
The Performing Arts and Humanities Building is located about 15 minutes from Baltimore’s Inner Harbor and about 25 minutes from the Washington Beltway (I-495). From the roadway, the Concert Hall’s exterior is easily recognized by its shiny stainless steel façade and its distinctive “thumbprint.”
For GPS devices, use Geocode 39.255363 -76.715370. Please note that the entire UMBC campus has one street address — 1000 Hilltop Circle, Baltimore, MD 21250 — so Google and Apple maps may not provide sufficient detail.
From downtown Baltimore, take I-95 south, then take Exit 47B and follow clearly marked signs to Route 166 and UMBC. As you enter the campus, proceed straight through the first roundabout, and then turn left at the second roundabout to merge onto the inner loop of Hilltop Circle, the road that surrounds the campus. At the traffic light at Hilltop Road, take a right, and then an immediate left into Parking Lot 8.
From I-695, take Exit 12C onto Wilkens Avenue heading west. At the roundabout, turn left to enter campus on Hilltop Road. Proceed straight through the traffic light, and then take an immediate left into Parking Lot 8.
From the Washington area, take I-95 north toward Baltimore, then take Exit 47B and follow clearly marked signs to Route 166 and UMBC.
