Music scholarships are awarded to music majors, minors, and ensemble participants. School of Music scholarships are merit-based and may often be added to other scholarships, depending on the student’s overall financial aid package.

Incoming freshmen music majors who have passed the Grade 8 Exam of the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music qualify for an ABRSM scholarship of $1000 per semester. Students need to provide exam documentation, but do not need to audition for this scholarship. 

Current students who are not receiving scholarships, or who wish to apply for scholarship consideration in a different performance area, may contact the coordinator for their performance area to request an audition.
