Annual Scholarship Funds
The PSU School of Music & Theater offers over 150 music scholarships totaling $400,000 in funds annually. Awards range from $1500 up to full tuition. Out-of-state students receiving a scholarship are also eligible for tuition remission toward out-of-state tuition and fees.
To audition for music scholarships you’ll need to record an audition (video or audio) and upload it into your School of Music & Theater application. Each performance area has its own audition requirements, which are available on our Student & Faculty resources page.
To qualify for music scholarships, you'll need to submit two separate applications, one to the School of Music & Theater, and one to Portland State. Both applications must be completed by January 31, 2021, to be considered for scholarships.
The PSU School of Music & Theater offers nine undergraduate degree paths in fourteen different areas of study. Our world-renowned faculty will challenge you to grow and excel as we prepare you to be the next generation of world-changing teachers, performers, scholars, composers, and arts advocates.
