Honors, Awards & Scholarships

Arts Scholarships for Incoming First-Year Students

Denison offers various scholarships to recognize talented incoming first-year students who have a passion for the arts, including vocal and instrumental performance. Awards range from $5,000 up to half tuition, and are renewable for four years—regardless of whether the student decides to major or minor in music.

Applicants wishing to be considered for an Arts Scholarship should submit an Arts Supplement by their chosen application deadline. Please visit the Arts Applicants page as well as the Audition page for details.

If you have further questions regarding music scholarships or auditions, contact Chris Montgomery.

Music Scholarships for Current Students

The following awards are given by consensus of the Music Department faculty based upon qualification and effort exhibited within the department. Some are based on merit, others on financial need, and a few on both. They are mostly annual awards.

Fine Arts Scholarships for Current Students

Music majors are also eligible for a number of competitive scholarships and awards that are shared across the Fine Arts division. Awards for the coming calendar year are announced each spring.
