The Music Department awards various undergraduate scholarships each year, usually in amounts ranging from $800 to $1500. Some scholarships are designated for students in particular areas, academic years, or majors, but all music students (majors, minors, and non-majors) are encouraged to apply: you will be considered for all scholarships for which you are eligible. NOTE: If you currently hold a renewable scholarship you are still required to submit an application to confirm your continuing eligibility.

Approximately 20 Work-Study Graduate Assistantships are available on a competitive basis to continuing matriculated graduate students who demonstrate financial need. Applicants should submit a Financial Aid Form to the Student Financial Aid and Employment Office. A resume and completed Application for Graduate Work-Study should be submitted to the Graduate School Office. The amount awarded depends on the individual student's financial need, the amount of funds made available to the University, and the amount of aid the student may be receiving from other sources. Applications must be submitted in early May. Contact the Graduate Studies Office at (607) 777-2239 for additional information.
The Office of External Scholarships and Fellowships invites students to check out its new website, http://scholarships.binghamton.edu. The site contains information for undergraduates on scholarships, funded summer experiences (i.e. research opportunities and positions with nonprofit groups), and post graduation opportunities.
