School of Music Auditions & Scholarships

Rewarding Talent

The Augustana School of Music (SoM) has three different types of scholarships available for first-year students. Each of these are designed to reward your musical talents and help make an Augustana education more affordable. All scholarships require participation in an ensemble and may require private lesson instruction.

The best way to see if Augustana is the right fit for you is to meet with our students and professors. Fill out this form to be connected with our faculty and students so we can help schedule a private lesson, campus visit or answer any questions you might have.
