Through our Need-based Recording and Travel Fund, the College of Music provides support annually to music students with demonstrated financial need for their recording projects and travel. Awards are to be made to qualifying music students based on the merits of the recording project or travel, the potential impact of the activity on the student’s education and/or career, and the level of faculty support for the student and the activity.
The fund stipulates the following eligibility requirements:

DENTON (UNT), Texas - On Monday afternoons during the University of North Texas fall and spring semesters, the Denton Senior Center is filled with the vibrant sounds of a traditional concert wind ensemble – woodwinds, brass and percussion all working together in harmony. But, there is something unique about the musicians sitting in the chairs of the two Denton New Horizons bands – they are either active adults or retirees.
Buddy Givens, who played music in college, the Air Force and a Shrine band, says when he moved to the area, he was looking for new musical opportunities.
DENTON (UNT), Texas - Jonathan Eaton, University of North Texas College of Music Margot and Bill Winspear Chair in Opera Studies, wants to transport his audience to a New York tenement in the sweltering summer of 1946 for a classic American story of love and loss, heartbreak and hope when he presents Kurt Weill’s classic, “Street Scene.”
