Music Scholarships


Music scholarships and grants are awarded to students who demonstrate a high degree of musical talent, whether instrument or vocal. Awards are determined by the faculty in the Division of Fine Arts after auditions are conducted and any additional requirements are met. While participation in music ensembles is required for these scholarships, it is not necessary to major in music to earn these awards.

Auditions for the Virtuoso Music Scholarship will be held on a specific date each February. Students who wish to be considered must attend the audition in person, must have applied to QU, and have forwarded their transcripts to QU Admissions. Students will have to complete the music audition form and the registration for the Music Visit Day.
