Scholarship Amounts and Requirements
Music department scholarships range from $500 to $7,500 and are renewable annually, contributing $2,000 to $30,000 over four years.
Each requires that the student perform in one of the department's major ensembles (concert choir/Briton singers, jazz ensemble, marching band/symphonic band, or symphony orchestra). Although students are assigned to one of these ensembles based on their abilities and the ensemble's needs, the Music Department encourages all students to participate in more than one. In addition to the ensemble requirement, students accepting scholarships of $1,750 or higher are also expected to take private lessons on their instrument/voice.
Once awarded, all scholarships are guaranteed for all four years of college provided all requirements are fulfilled and the student is in good standing in the department. Our financial aid office works to supplement music scholarships with other kinds of aid to make an Albion education more affordable.
The Westbrook Scholarship
The Music Department offers the Westbrook Scholarship to students majoring in music who show outstanding potential as a musician and leader/role model for others in the department. The Westbrook Scholarship requires letters of recommendation and a personal essay. To apply for the Westbrook Scholarship, complete that portion of the general Scholarship Application.
