What is the Scholarship Application for?

Each year the Department of Music at Southwestern gives away thousands of dollars in scholarship money to elite musicians. Music Festival Scholarships are awarded to talented juniors and seniors that are selected by Southwestern's music faculty. The faculty will select a number of students from submitted auditions to be scholarship finalists. Scholarship finalists are featured as soloists at Southwestern's Festival Showcase Concert, and are eligible for a scholarship towards their first year of study at Southwestern. The University will cover travel, food, and on-campus lodging costs for each student finalist.
