Scholarship awards in varying amounts are available for both music and non-music majors for participation in music ensembles. Scholarship awards are based upon the qualifications of the student and the needs of the music department. These qualifications are determined through auditions, academic records review and the student's potential for success in music, and academic advancement.  For first-time JSU students, Unconditional Acceptance status is a requirement for a scholarship award.  For continuing students, the maintenance of a 2.5 GPA overall based upon a full time academic load is required.
