Music Scholarships

Studies have shown that students who complete music courses score higher on their SATs, have higher GPAs and receive more academic honors than their counterparts. But once they graduate from high school, it’s not a test score but a love for music that drives them to continue their studies.

Those who aspire to be exceptional musicians are often faced with fierce competition - competition that makes many reconsider a future in the music business. Because a postsecondary education is costly regardless of major and students are frequently forced to opt for better-paid, more secure fields, the ones they know will make it easier to earn a living and pay down their student loans.

This is an unfortunate side effect of the rising tuition costs, but we’re determined to reverse the trend through providing deserving students with music scholarship opportunities. The University of Hawaii, Westmont College and the ASCAP offer various music scholarships but for students looking for more options, Scholarships.com is THE place to look.

Scholarships.com is dedicated to helping students pursue a career based on their interests rather than their finances. When students complete our free college scholarships search, they can find information about numerous music scholarships - awards specifically restricted to those planning to study music. Information about more than 2.7 million scholarships and grants can be found at our site. At Scholarships.com, students will have free access to our college search, a regularly updated education blog and detailed information about college scholarships, grants, fellowships, internships and student loans. And that’s just the beginning. Music to our ears!
