Scholarships & Audition Requirements
The Department of Music, Theatre, and Dance offers several music scholarships. Some of these are competitive awards for music and music therapy majors based on talent and need. Students wishing to major in music or music therapy must first apply and be admitted to Queens. Admission to the school does not guarantee admission to the Department of Music, Theatre, and Dance. You must fill out the Music Audition and Scholarship Application prior to your audition.
The Department of Music, Theatre, and Dance strongly encourages students competing for named scholarships to audition in person on February 20th, 2015. This competition date coincides with Department activities and informative sessions hosted by Music Department faculty and students. Additional audition days designated for named scholarships will be held on January 16, January 23, and February 13, 2015.
An audition DVD (only DVD format allowed) will be accepted if distance prevents you from auditioning in person. The deadline for distance audition by DVD format is January 20th, 2015. Students submitting a DVD audition will not be considered for scholarship after the January 20 deadline.
