Music Scholarships

The Music Department awards nearly $50,000 annually to new and returning students involved in the music program.

All music-related scholarship opportunities at WOU may be viewed on the university AcademicWorks website by entering the search term “music.”

To be eligible for music-related scholarships, students must apply to the Music Department Scholarship opportunity in addition to the WOU General Scholarship application.

Graduate students also may apply for a Graduate Assistantship through the office of Graduate Programs.

Students interested in playing with the WOU Drum Line or WOU Pep Band may qualify for a tuition remission.

The deadline for application to Music Scholarships is May 1st.
