Music Scholarships

Music scholarships are available to prospective music majors and non-music majors. Financial awards are based on music ability and department need. Students are expected to demonstrate satisfactory performance and musicianship skills in the audition through the performance of appropriate repertoir and other audition requirements. The amount of the scholarship award is directly proportionate to the student's level of preparation and the quality of their performance at the time of the audition.

Audition Requirements

  • Any repertoire that you have prepared as a soloist for regional or state music festivals is appropriate for your audition. You are strongly encouraged to select an audition piece or pieces that are accompanied and to thoroughly practice with the accompianiment in preparation.
