Vocal scholarships are available for those students majoring in music and concentrating in voice.  We don’t specify a deadline for auditions, but we encourage students to audition before the February 15 University deadline for scholarships.

To receive a Music Major Scholarship a student must major in music with either BME, BM, or BA degree – see degree plans below. The Music Major Scholarship is tied to GPA and Ensemble participation.
