Music Scholarships

Heisler Music Scholarships

The Heisler Scholarships are unique in that they are not based upon financial need. Recipients must be enrolled as a music major, minor or concentration. They are chosen for their performance proficiency and their potential to contribute to the music program.

Scholarships are given for a maximum of one academic year and are renewable.

Applicants must apply to the Music Department, pass an initial audition/interview session, and maintain a 3.0 GPA once on campus.


Applications and Paperwork

  • College Chorale
  • Jazz Ensemble
  • Sinfonia
  • Symphonic Band

They register for at least one other music course during the year of the scholarship award; this music course may be another ensemble, applied lessons, or a classroom course such as theory or music history. Learn about the audition process.
