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.
