Music Scholarship Application
To apply for a music scholarship, you will need to have a video audition, recorded and posted online at an accessible URL. If using YouTube or a similar sharing video service, a privately listed video works well.
For Full-Tuition Scholarships
Auditions for full-tuition scholarships take place in two rounds. The first round is the submission of a video performance and this music scholarship application, which must be received no later than October 15. Finalists selected for the second round are invited to Concordia's campus for live auditions in early December.
Scholarships for Music Majors
Talent-based scholarship auditions are accepted throughout the year for prospective students who are still in the university’s admission process. It is recommended that your audition and application be submitted within one month of being accepted at Concordia. To apply, record and upload a video performance and complete this music scholarship application form.
