The Saint Cecilia Music Scholarship for music students

In addition to a variety of academic scholarships offered by Saint Mary's University of Minnesota, the Department of Music offers talent-based scholarships. Music scholarships are available for both majors and non-majors, vary from $1000 to $3000, and are renewable all four years. These awards are given based on performing ability and music interest. Though you don’t need to be a music major to qualify for an award, you must participate in music activities at Saint Mary's (ensembles, lessons, etc.).

Auditions for the Saint Cecilia Music Scholarship also serve as the required audition to the music major for those students desiring to declare music as their major. This eliminates the need for a separate audition to the major for those who participate. However, again, a major in music is not required to be eligible for the Saint Cecilia awards.
