New Student Scholarships

The Department of Music awards talent-based scholarships to undergraduate and graduate music majors with superior academic records and high musical achievement. Talent-based scholarships provide funding between $4,500 and $9,000 per academic year.  These scholarships require recipients to maintain a 3.0 grade point average, participate in a major ensemble as assigned by the Department of Music, and enroll for a minimum of twelve undergraduate credit hours per term (nine graduate hours per term). Talent-based scholarships are renewable up to four years for undergraduate students and up to two years for graduate students.
All incoming students are considered for a talent-based scholarship during their audition. Students will be notified by mail in April if they have been selected for a talent-based scholarship for the following academic year.
