Current and prospective students are eligible to apply for academic scholarships, federal student aid, and work-study campus employment through the Lander University Office of Financial Aid. The Department of Music actively recruits student musicians whose talent and need qualify them for scholarships specific to music. Students are strongly encouraged to seek out and to take advantage of scholarship monies which may be available from a variety of sources, including local, state, and federal entities.
Scholarships are awarded on a renewable or non-renewable basis to full-time students who hold the requisite grade point average. Other scholarship criteria may also apply.
Prospective music majors, music minors, and ensemble participants must audition before the music faculty to demonstrate performing abilities, knowledge of music theory fundamentals, and overall music potential. Students pursuing the music major are given priority in the scholarship awarding process.
Musicians should submit the Lander Music Scholarship Application and Audition Registration Form
, accompanied by a letter of recommendation from a music professional, at least one week prior to their chosen audition date. Though it is possible to audition without having been accepted to Lander, the awarding of scholarships will not occur until a student is officially admitted to the university.
Questions about audition procedures may be directed to:
Dr. Anthony Lenti, audition coordinator, at 864-388-8349 or firstname.lastname@example.org,
or to Dr. Lila Noonkester, chair of the Department of Music, at 864-388-8348 or email@example.com.
