Music Scholarships

The John E.N. and Dede Howard Department of Music at Hillsdale College is pleased to offer opportunities for merit-based scholarships to all students regardless of academic major.

Scholarship auditions are scheduled on an individual basis and can usually be coordinated with a general visit to the campus. Specific audition requirements and further application information are available upon request.

Audition deadlines for admission in 2023:

December 1, 2022 for priority consideration
February 13, 2023 for regular consideration

Scholarship awardees must enroll in individual lessons and participate in a departmental ensemble each semester as determined by the music faculty, as well as maintaining good academic standing.

Awards include a waiver of lesson fees and are annually renewed based on successful academic and musical performance.
