Each February, the Music Department hosts a Scholarship Day to allow prospective students the opportunity to compete for the various financial awards offered by the division. Scholarships range from $1000 - $18,000 per year.
Music scholarships are awarded on the basis of an audition and an interview.
Singers are expected to sing at least two songs from memory in contrasting style.
Pianists are expected to play from memory two pieces of at least the difficulty of the Bach Inventions or the sonatas of Haydn or Mozart.
Organists are expected to play one of the easier Bach preludes and fugues or works of comparable difficulty. Organists are also expected to show competence on the piano.
Instrumentalists or guitarists should play two pieces or etudes in contrasting styles.
Composers should bring two or more original compositions and recordings (if available) with them. Composition scholarships are awarded to incoming composition majors based on the quality of the student's original work.
Students interested in church music or music history should audition in their principal instrument.
The deadline for completing your application is January 31 of your senior year if you wish to be considered for scholarship aid.
