Scholarships for Musical Arts Participation

Students get a $150 scholarship for participating in Marching Band and another $150 scholarship if they participate in Wind Ensemble in the Spring.  

We also have a number of audition-based scholarships available for Marching Band at the start of each school year.  

Finally, students who live on campus and are in Marching Band for their first semester in college receive a $1,000 Housing Scholarship if they live in the designated residence halls that are participating in this program. This scholarship is for your first semester only—after that, if you live on campus and are in the band again, you will receive a 10% discount off your housing costs.
