The Department of Music offers a number of scholarships to exceptionally talented incoming music students each year. Scholarship offers are determined by quality of the student's audition, the student's academic achievements, and the student's Music Education Interview (if applicable).
Talent-based music scholarships are awarded to incoming students on a rolling basis from November through March of the academic year. Students are strongly encouraged to apply and audition early for maximum consideration. There is no separate application for music scholarships. Any student auditioning as a music major on or before March 1 at any calendar year will automatically be considered for a scholarship offer.
Scholarships play a vital role in making higher education more affordable and accessible to students and
their families. That’s why we created our easy-to-use EIU Scholarship Search, which helps you explore
all the scholarship and award opportunities available at Eastern. Admitted students can log in and see
more personalized scholarship information based on their academic profile. If you have any questions
about the EIU Scholarship Search site, please contact Mallorie Fonseca, at
