Scholarships


The Choral/Vocal Division has scholarships available for undergraduate music majors, as well as a limited number of scholarships for non-music majors who are in Concert Chorale or Chamber Choir.

Scholarships are given out by March 1 of each year, following the audition period. They are based on:

  1. Need of the Choral/Vocal Division on a given year
  2. Academics of the singer (at least a 3.0 is required to receive any scholarship)
  3. Sight reading ability of the singer
  4. Demonstrated vocal ability

Choral/Vocal scholarships are determined at the time of the audition.

Academic awards (through Financial Aid office) are not handled by the School of Music. For academic awards, and other general university scholarships beyond music, please check with Financial Aid.   A student often has multiple scholarships from various areas/departments of the university. 

Secondly, there are out-of-state tuition waivers available for new undergraduate students majoring in music. These are determined at the time of the audition. Students are required to have a 3.0 high school GPA (or college GPA if transferring) in order to receive any scholarships or out-of-state waivers.
