School of Music, Theatre, and Dance

Auditions and Scholarships

Students who have an interest in applying for a University scholarship should apply for K-State admission and scholarships.


An audition is required both to enter a studio (percussion, voice, piano, cello, etc.) and to receive a scholarship from the school.

You are welcome and encouraged to apply for both vocal and instrumental scholarships, but to do so you must complete both applications. 

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 audition days. Students who wish to do so may audition for our artist faculty at that time.
