Music Program Graduate Tuition Scholarships and Teaching Assistantships

On this page:

Tuition Scholarships

Graduate Tuition Scholarships (GTS) are one-semester awards (renewable up to four regular and two summer semesters) that pay for tuition ONLY.  Fees are not paid, and no stipend is awarded. To apply, students should address a letter or email to the director of Graduate Studies in Music expressing interest.  A limited number of GTS awards are available each year. Students on a GTS must enroll as a full-time graduate student every regular semester (fall and spring) and maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0.
