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 and up 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). Artistic Achievement Awards are in addition to any merit scholarships the student may receive. 

Auditions are required and acceptance is competitive. However, for those who receive PLU music scholarships, the opportunities are endless.

To be considered for a music scholarship for the 2015-16 academic year, both an application to PLU, as well as the scholarship contact form  AND a Music Scholarship Audition Application must be completed. You DO NOT have to be admitted to PLU to audition for a music scholarship. Auditions for the 2015-16 academic year will take place Feb. 20, 21 and 22, 2015 on the PLU campus.
