Department of Music
The Music Department awards scholarships each year to both incoming and continuing music students. Music Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of performance auditions, demonstrated academic preparation and success, service, and potential to contribute positively to the music profession.
During the Spring semester of each year, students already enrolled in the music department will receive information on how to apply for scholarships. Incoming students will be automatically considered on the basis of their audition.
