Scholarship Information

Students having an interest in applying for a University scholarship should submit an application
for admission and request that their high school send a transcript of their credits for the first seven semesters to the Director of Admissions, Kansas State University, Manhattan, KS 66506.

A number of strictly music scholarships are available to Music Majors. They are awarded on the basis of successful performance achievements and scholarly potential. The awards are renewable throughout the undergraduate tenure pending suitable Grade Point Average and performance levels.

As a music major or minor, you will be required to declare a major performing area (voice, clarinet, violin, etc.). Please be aware that an audition is required in any case for admission into a particular studio. This is typically done at the Music Awards Days, but if you are not planning on auditioning for a scholarship you will still be required to play for the professor of the particular
(of your primary performing area).

Please contact specific areas for more information:

Band (Dr. Frank Tracz)

Choirs (Dr. Julie Yu-Oppenheim)

Keyboard (Dr. Slawomir Dobrzanski)

Orchestra/Strings (Dr. David Littrell)

Voice (Dr. Reginald Pittman)

Winds and Percussion (Dr. Steven Maxwell)

Music Awards Days
High School Seniors interested in attending K-State as a music major or minor and in applying for scholarship consideration are encouraged to participate in one of the several Music Awards Days. The purpose of the Music Awards Days is to allow students, parents and teachers to view our new facilities, meet our faculty, and discuss career and curriculum objectives. Students who wish to do so may audition for our artist faculty on Music Awards Days. The results of this audition will be used as the basis for the applicant’s admission into a particular studio, and for the applicant’s candidacy for music scholarships.

High School students who are in their junior year may opt to audition for the music faculty as well. Although scholarships are only offered to incoming K-State students, the experience of playing a scholarship audition in front of university faculty can be quite valuable. The music faculty will provide commentary on areas in which students should focus their study as they they prepare for college.

Information about the dates of these Music Awards Days and music scholarships may be obtained by contacting the K-State Music Program, School of Music, Theatre, and Dance,
109 McCain Auditorium, Kansas State University, Manhattan, KS 66506.
