Scholarship Auditions

Music Scholarships are available to music majors, music minors, and music participants. Amounts range from $200 to $4,000 renewable upon meeting the criteria listed in the scholarship acceptance letter and based upon funding.

All music majors must audition for entrance in to the program. Students seeking a music scholarship will use that audition process as meeting the requirement. Any student not seeking a music scholarship or any student applying after the scholarship process is complete should contact the Chair of the Department of Music or the appropriate faculty member in the area of study to set up an audition. A late audition may take place during the summer months or at the beginning of the semester.
