Scholarships

All applicants are automatically considered for academic and merit (talent) based scholarships upon submission of their application and completion of their audition.  

Music scholarship offers are mailed to students by the end of March and will not appear on a student's financial aid package as scholarships are not processed until July. 

Scholarships can range from partial to full-tuition, renewable for four (4) years.

Students are also encouraged to submit the Secondary Scholarship Application on their MyCUBoulder Account.  The application is open from December 1 - March 1.
(Note: There is no advantage to completing this application early as these applications are not reviewed until after the deadline)
