Scholarships for Music Education Majors

Becoming a music educator allows you to bring the joy of music to students of all ages and abilities. But before you can begin teaching others about music, you need to receive some instruction in the subject yourself. The good news is that there are many scholarships available to music education majors. Some of these scholarships are available through private organizations, such as the Young Musicians Foundation, the BMI Foundation and the ASCAP Foundation, while others are available through individual universities, including the University of Iowa and the University of South Carolina. In order to apply for a scholarship, students may need to demonstrate financial need, audition in person or submit a video or audio recording of their work. Additionally, some scholarships are specifically targeted towards students of a particular gender or ethnicity.
