College of Music Scholarships

The College of Music awards competitive music scholarships based on talent and professional promise. When you apply for admission to the College, your application and audition also serves as the application for music scholarships. If you are an out-of-state student and you are awarded a competitive scholarship of $1,000 or more during the fall (or fall plus spring), you are able to attend UNT at the resident tuition rate for that academic year - including the summer term. Learning more begins with visiting our Scholarships page. Also make sure to visit UNT Student Financial Aid and Scholarships, and for graduate applicants, visit the Toulouse Graduate School.
