Five scholarships are available for entering students (new and transfer) pursuing first-year studies in music:

  • two vocal scholarships
  • two instrumental scholarships
  • one piano scholarship

Each entrance scholarship is worth up to $3,000 and may be renewed for an additional 3 years (total of $12,000 over 4 years). Normally, Musical Arts Scholarships are awarded to Music majors on the basis of musical talent, and artistic and academic promise. Scholarships are awarded at the discretion of the Department of Music. The number and value of the scholarships may be altered depending on the applicant pool.

  • Be admitted to undergraduate studies at TWU

  • Beginning in the second year, participate in a small ensemble (vocal or instrumental, as deemed appropriate) for all remaining semesters of the award
  • Maintain a high level of performance as displayed in private lessons, applied music juries, and ensembles
  • Maintain a minimum GPA of 3.0 throughout the degree program
