Music Scholarship Auditions

Stay involved with music during your college career, and get scholarship funding at the same time. At Erskine, you don’t have to be a music major or minor to receive a music scholarship. Scholarship recipients continue taking private lessons and participate in faculty-led ensembles but are free to pursue whatever major(s) they like.

Students who have earned places in the top All-State ensembles are eligible for a $2500 annual music scholarship. That amount may be increased with an on-campus audition. All other students interested in a scholarship should schedule an audition with music faculty.

The Music Scholarship Application form can be downloaded as a PDF.
