Department of Music



For exceptional students interested in studying and performing music, there is no better place than Pacific Lutheran University. The Department of Music offers more than 250 scholarships each year for those who seek to develop their skills alongside some of the most talented student-musicians and faculty members in the Pacific Northwest.

Ranging from $1,000-$12,000 per year, and renewed up to three additional years, music scholarships are available to students in a single specific area (for example - strings, voice, brass, etc). Auditions are required and acceptance is competitive. However, for those who receive PLU music scholarships, the opportunities are endless.
