Choral Scholarships & Financial Aid

The K-State Choral Division is fortunate to be able to award a multitude of choral scholarships to both music majors and non-majors totaling more than $30,000. These scholarships are made possible by the generosity of our donors, alumni, and friends. If you would like to contribute to any of the existing choral scholarships at K-State or would like to establish a new scholarship, please contact the KSU Foundation.

K-State Choir members can receive a scholarship from the Vocal Area, Choral Area (for vocals), and/or Choral Area (leadership). All scholarships are open to students of all majors. Choral Area (leadership) scholarships are awarded following on-campus involvement in the choirs.
