Music Scholarship Opportunities
Thank you for your interest in the music program at Santa Clara University. While no audition is necessary to major in music, scholarship auditions (vocalists & instrumentalists) and interviews (composers) may be scheduled for students who will be a declared music major and wish to be considered for financial support.
Auditions will take place on Saturday January 26th, 2013 in the Recital Hall of the Santa Clara University Center of Performing Arts. The actual time for the auditions will be dependent on the number of applications, and will be communicated closer to the audition date.
Please download the necessary documents (See Right Hand Column) and submit them by Friday, January 11th 2013. Applications postmarked later than January 11th will be inadmissible.
Since many applicants live far away, a live audition or interview is not required. Both live and pre-recorded auditions have equal weighting in the decision process.
* Note: students may apply in more than one area.
All scholarship materials must be mailed (hardcopy) to the Music Office address below with any accompanying materials you may wish to submit. (It is not necessary to submit supplemental materials if you take a live audition). Electronic/E-mail submissions will not be accepted.
Composers are encouraged to mail their applications with materials.
Applications must be postmarked no later than January 11th, 2013. Applications postmarked after this date will not be accepted.
Send your application material to:
