Dean’s Music Scholarships

Emory University makes available a limited number of Dean’s Music Scholarships which can range from half tuition to full tuition. These scholarships are available to talented incoming freshmen who show exceptional promise in their applied area and are interested in performing in a major ensemble during their time at Emory. These scholarships are open to all students, regardless of major.

Students who wish to be considered for these scholarships must meet all admission requirements of Emory University. All auditioning students are considered for the scholarship; no additional paperwork is required. Scholarship recipients will be notified in April. While all Emory students may audition to declare a music major once they arrive on campus, only high-school seniors who audition by December 11th of their senior year will be considered for a Dean’s Music Scholarship.

Students interested in Music Scholarships should submit a music résumé and a DVD or CD recording representative of their performances, or links to online audio or video. Students are also strongly encouraged to consider an on-campus audition in the Fall to meet faculty and current students, take a consultation lesson, and experience the Music facilities and campus. All materials must be submitted and any live auditions completed by December 9th, 2016.

Prospective students should submit all materials and any questions to Dr. Richard Prior, Director of Orchestral and Performance Studies and coordinator of the Music Scholarships.


Decisions on finalists will be made by late January, 2017
