The Department is able to award scholarships to outstanding students each year through the generosity of retired faculty, alums and lovers of our music programs. Scholarships require an audition and have an expectation of maintaining good academic standing as well as performing in ensembles.  The University Foundation also has an application process for numerous scholarships. For more information on Scholarships awarded by the foundation go to:https://uwlax.academicworks.com/
