All undergraduate applicants admitted to the CU Boulder College of Music are automatically considered for merit-based music scholarships upon completing the audition process. Undergraduate music scholarships come from state/tuition sources as well as private donor/foundation sources and may be designated as one-year awards or renewable awards (up to a maximum of four years). In a typical year, 50-55% of incoming undergraduate music students receive music scholarship support.
In addition to College of Music aid, you are also encouraged to submit the Secondary Scholarship Application via the CU Boulder Scholarship Application page between Nov. 1 and Feb. 15. There are two kinds of scholarships available for CU Boulder undergraduates: Automatic scholarship consideration for incoming first-year students and private scholarships.
