Audition for a music scholarship!
Wittenberg awards more than $350,000 in music scholarships annually—and these are available to all students regardless of major. Each year, several several dozen scholarships are awarded, for voice, band and orchestral instruments, piano, organ, and classical guitar.
To audition for a music scholarship, please submit the form below and audition by March 1 before your first year at Wittenberg. You do not need to first complete an application for admission to Wittenberg. If you are considering a major in music, this audition will also serve as your entrance audition.
If you have any questions (including possible eligibility for a music scholarship if you are planning to enter Wittenberg this fall), please contact:
