    Beloit College Music Scholarship Application

    We're excited to learn of your interest in applying for the music scholarships at Beloit College.

    Scholarship recipients are chosen by Beloit College music faculty based on a recorded video or audio audition.  Both scholarships are worth up to $20,000 (up to $5,000 per year) over a four year period.  To retain these awards, winners must contribute to Beloit's music department by registering for a performance ensemble or pursuing lessons- one need not be a music major to qualify for these scholarships.

    Students are encouraged to audition in their area of strongest expertise, regardless of whether they intend to ultimately participate in an ensemble or lessons reflective of their audition.


    Candidates are required to perform two contrasting selections. While a specific difficulty level is not required, candidates should choose two pieces that they feel best represent their skills and abilities. Please note that original compositions are not permitted as audition repertoire.

    Vocalists should perform two vocal solos with piano accompaniment; foreign language is not required but is encouraged. Suggested repertoire includes art songs or arias, one selection may be from the American songbook/musical theatre repertoire; pop songs are not acceptable.

    Instrumentalists should perform solos from standard repertoire, with accompaniment if appropriate; an excerpt from an orchestral work is not acceptable.



    Your application, including supporting recommendations and the recorded audition should be submitted by:
    ​​​​​​Early Action I /Early Action II / Early Decision Applicants: December 15, 2019
    Regular Decision Applicants: February 1, 2020

    Recipients will be notified on a rolling basis, and must be admitted to Beloit College as a degree-seeking student in order to receive a Marjorie Brown Leff or Sau-Wing Lam Scholarship. Continuing Beloit College students are not eligible.
