Students intending to major in music who complete a Scholarship Audition will be considered for awards that range from $1,500 to $5,000. Music minors and non-music majors are also encouraged to audition, and those who qualify will be considered for performance awards to participate in Wind Ensemble, Concert Choir, or Contemporary Music Ensemble.
*Students who are returning to SCSU in 2024-2025 will audition live on Friday, February 23, 2024 and should complete STEP TWO below and speak with their SCSU applied lesson instructor or ensemble director for the audition application link. Returning students do not need to apply through Acceptd.
New and transfer students should complete the application to St. Cloud State University at https://www.stcloudstate.edu/admissions
Once admitted to St. Cloud State, you will activate your StarID to access and complete the general Huskies Scholarship application for music at https://www.stcloudstate.edu/huskiesscholarships
Your answers on this general application will automatically match you to all music scholarships for which you qualify. (Auto match does not guarantee an award.)
All scholarship applicants must complete the Acceptd online application, accessed via the red portal below. Once in Acceptd, start by choosing a degree and program from the dropdown menus on the left. Those wishing to submit a video audition must do so by the deadline of March 15, 2024. An alternative option for live auditions will be held on Feb. 29, 2024 and may be scheduled by calling (320) 308-3223 or emailing email@example.com no later than Feb. 23, at which time you will be given a specific audition time and schedule for the day on February 29.
A scholarship offer will come to you in two forms: a letter from the Music Department at St. Cloud State University and a notification from Huskies Scholarships. The letter will outline your award amount, provisions of award and deadline to accept. The Huskies Scholarships’ notification will direct you through the steps to accept your scholarship.
