Band Scholarships

A successful audition and concurrent enrollment in Concert Band is required if a student is interested in receiving a pep band scholarship. A limited number of scholarships are available each year. The audition for returning students will take place by the end of the spring semester for the following year. Potential new students will audition during their senior year of high school. 

Auditions can be completed live on campus, or via online through apps such as zoom or skype. Auditions must be completed by May 1 prior to the academic year the scholarship is awarded. Please contact the appropriate professor to discuss the best option for you.

Please contact Dr. Joseph Montelione, Director of Bands for more information or to answer any additional questions.
