How May I Audition for a Music Scholarship?

To be considered for a music scholarship, students must meet the following requirements:

  1. Audition for EKU Music Faculty. Guidelines for auditions may be found here.
  2. Have declared a major or minor in music – The Change of Major form may be found here.
  3. Have been fully admitted to EKU – Full admission includes the following:

When Should I Audition for a Music Scholarship?

All students are encouraged to apply for a merit scholarship based on their talent. Awards are typically decided by March 1, and a limited number of scholarships are available to non-music majors. Students interested in auditioning for a merit-based scholarship should audition early to allow adequate time for consideration. Students are also encouraged to apply for other scholarships.

What If I’m a Transfer Student?

All transfer students must complete the scholarship waiver form if they wish to apply for a scholarship.

What Should I Bring to My Audition?

Please bring any materials you need for your performance, including music for an accompanist if needed. Please specify your accompaniment needs on your application.
