Procedures for Department of Music Scholarship Applications
You will find a common application cover sheet on the Department’s scholarship web page:
Every scholarship for which you apply will need to have this form attached as a cover sheet.
You can fill this information out once and save it then go back and adjust the form fields as needed for specific scholarship information. We hope this will save you time.
Each scholarship has its own application form as well, with information specific to that scholarship.
All scholarships require submission of an unofficial transcript.
All competition recitals require submission of print-ready program information (including translations for singers). Your applied teacher must approve the print-ready recital program information before you submit your competition application. Make sure you proof your information carefully.
Remember that competitions require published scores. Plan ahead to make sure you have these well before the competition day.
If you need help writing your supportive statement(s) please see a member of the scholarship committee or talk to a faculty member who can assist.
Remember: you are presenting yourself in the best way possible. Promote yourself and your accomplishments as a performer, scholar, or future educator. Discuss your financial situation where appropriate.
Please submit letters of recommendation that mention the specific scholarship by name. This is especially important for scholarships that are decided upon outside of the Department. It is fine to use the same letter (or nearly so) for different scholarships, but tailoring the letter to a specific scholarship helps your recommended student in the end.
Please try, whenever possible, to give your recommendations to the student so that they can submit all of their materials together.
