AUDITION DEADLINE: March 15, 2024
Thank you for your interest in studying music at St. Cloud State University!
Students intending to major in music who complete a Scholarship Audition will be considered for awards that range from $1,500 to $5,000. Music minors and non-music majors are also encouraged to audition, and those who qualify will be considered for a performance award to participate in Wind Ensemble, Concert Choir, or Contemporary Music Ensemble.
SCSU offers degrees in general music, music education, composition, and performance, as well as minors in music, arts entrepreneurship, and new media - music and art. To learn more about our degree programs, go to: https://www.stcloudstate.edu/music/programs/default.aspx
Are you ready to apply?
Completing your application via Acceptd is only one step in a four-step process. An award decision will not be made unless all steps are completed.
1. New and transfer students should first apply to St. Cloud State University at https://www.stcloudstate.edu/apply/default.aspx.
2. Once admitted to SCSU, you will activate your STAR ID to access and complete the general Huskies Scholarships Application for music at: https://www.stcloudstate.edu/huskiesscholarships
Your answers on this general application will automatically match you to all music scholarships for which you qualify. (Auto match does not guarantee an award.)
NOTE: There are many other scholarships in Huskies Scholarships that require additional information, so it is recommended that you search for scholarships beyond the music unit if you are interested.
3. All scholarship applicants must complete the Acceptd online application, starting with choosing a degree and program in the dropdown menus on the left. Those wishing to submit a video audition must do so by the March 15, 2024 deadline. An alternative option for live auditions will be held on February 29, 2024, and may be scheduled by calling (320) 308-3223 or emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than February 23, at which time you will be given a specific audition time and schedule for the day on February 29. NOTE: For music majors, the audition serves as both scholarship and entrance audition into private music lessons.
4. Finally, attend your audition on February 29, or record and submit a video audition to Acceptd by March 15.
Students will be notified about scholarship awards before April 15. Those accepting awards must formally do so through Huskies Scholarships, which may include a prompt to submit a letter of thanks to your scholarship donor.
