The School of Music awards scholarships to talented students on the basis of an audition, regardless of intended major. These competitive awards are contingent upon admission to Puget Sound and enrollment as a full-time student.
The School of Music offers scholarships for all band and orchestral instruments, voice, piano, organ, and jazz. Scholarship recipients are required to maintain academic standards, take studio lessons on their major instrument, and participate in ensembles or serve as accompanists.
Music scholarships supersede all other merit scholarships. Students who receive music scholarships may also receive other financial aid, such as need-based aid. Please visit Financing Your Education for helpful information and planning resources.
To apply for a music scholarship, you must complete the Audition Application to schedule an audition. A video-recorded audition will be considered for those who live more than 200 miles away from an audition location, but priority is given to those students who complete live auditions. First-year applicants applying Early Decision need to audition by December 1 to be considered for a music scholarship. Please review the entrance audition requirements for your specific instrument.
