Scholarships for Music Majors

Musical talent takes time and commitment to nurture, and there are a lot of organizations that celebrate the desire to study the musical arts by offering scholarships to music majors. Many of these scholarships are offered by private foundations, and they are often reserved for those who are heading to accredited schools to study music. Typically, applicants must display significant talent in a particular area of music, such as instrumental band, singing or music composition. While academic achievement may be a factor in the selection process, the majority of scholarships for music majors give significant weight to musical talent, and most require the submission of work samples, or even a video, audio or in-person audition. Students applying for these scholarships may also be asked to submit an essay and provide letters of recommendation from teachers or instructors. Explore the list below to get started on finding the right music scholarship for you.
