Scholarship Auditions

ForTour2011-A

Students considering attendance at Presbyterian College are eligible to audition for a music scholarship.

The size of each music scholarship depends on a variety of factors including:

  1. Demonstrated musical aptitude;
  2. Interest in participating;
  3. Other financial aid; and,
  4. Having completed and submitted a scholarship application with attached video or audio audition OR performing an audition on-campus.

The single most important factor for full consideration for a music scholarship is early submission (Fall 2014) of the application.

Scholarship applications/auditions submitted in September, October, November, and December will ensure full consideration.  A January audition date has been scheduled, but this date is reserved for December/January applicants.
