Music Department Scholarships
Students of any major are eligible for music scholarships through the completion of an entrance audition during primary audition dates. Please visit our auditions page for more information.
Students who receive a music scholarship must participate and register for a major ensemble, as well as register for private instruction according to the requirements of their area of study. Scholarships are generally awarded for one academic year, but four-year scholarships are occasionally awarded in some performing areas. Scholarships are also awarded for participation in certain select ensembles, such as the Scholarship String Quartet, Western Voices, Western Brass, and the Western Wind Quintet.
