The Department of Music offers scholarships of varying amounts to majors through audition.
Scholarship Audition Deadline -- March 1
Prospective students need only contact the Music Office to schedule an audition date & time. Current students should submit the form below:
Waverly M. Cole Music Scholarships
These scholarships are the result of a generous donation by Dr. Waverly Cole of Richmond, Virginia, and are awarded to music majors as chosen by the music department faculty through audition. Amounts can range as high as full tuition.
Hull Music Scholarships
Provided through gifts from Mr. Andrew Hull and Duvahl Ridgeway Hull, the Hull Music Scholarships are awarded to students majoring in Music.
Those eligible for consideration must audition and interview with the faculty of the Music Department. Applicants must possess outstanding music performance ability and above average academic performances as determined by the Vice-president for Academic Affairs. Candidates must be residents of Virginia and full time students who intend to earn a bachelor's degree from Longwood prior to pursuing further graduate or professional study.
The factors of participation and evidence of leadership potential are taken into consideration when selecting the recipients of the Hull Scholarships. No recipient of the Hull Music Scholarship may be a member of (or become a member of) a social sorority or social fraternity while receiving any money from the Hull Fund.
A scholarship may be awarded to the same student from year to year provided the student meets the terms and conditions established (including reauditioning and interview). Scholarships are awarded in the areas of instrumental, vocal, theory/composition, and keyboard.
