CUW Music Scholarship Auditions 2025

Auditions will be used for consideration toward the various music scholarships available from CUW. A major or minor in music is not required in order to apply for a Music Scholarship. All award recipients must participate in a music ensemble and take private lessons on the awarded performing medium while enrolled at CUW. If you are not interested in applying for a Music Scholarship but would like to participate in one of our music ensembles, you may audition in the fall.

In addition, CUW may designate a scholarship for alumni of Lutheran Summer Music. In order to be considered, you must have been a participant of LSM prior to auditioning at CUW. Please indicate on the application if you have participated in LSM.

Official Awards

CUW’s Music Scholarship awards are not official until a Music Department Award contract is signed by the recipient and received by the Music Office by the award deadline. Until receipt of your contract, any Music Scholarship Award listed on your financial aid letter may be subject to change. All music scholarships are subject to an annual review by the Music Department.

Prospective Music Majors & Minors

Auditioning students who are planning to be a music major or minor will be asked to complete a brief keyboard proficiency test with the music faculty. This test does not require any prior preparation.
