The scholarship, which is awarded at varying levels from $500 to $7,000 per year, is renewable each year as long as the student continues to major or minor in music.

An audition is required as well as the application below.

In addition, singers are encouraged to audition singing vocal works in two different languages (one of which may be English). It is recommended that singers and pianists audition from memory.
