Music Scholarship Information and Deadline

All students auditioning for the Hayes School of Music are considered for music scholarships. There is no separate application process or deadline to be eligible for a music scholarship. Students are strongly encouraged to audition as early as possible to qualify for all available music scholarships. Students who wish to be considered for various App State university-wide scholarships must meet Admissions' Early Action application deadline. Early Action applicants should contact Ms. Janet Adams to arrange for an audition.

Students that audition after our audition dates typically do not qualify for music scholarships. Due to the limited number of available music scholarships, music minors do not qualify for music scholarships.
