We offer the following categories of scholarships:

Academic Performance Scholarship (APS)

Academic Performance Scholarships are open to any incoming freshman or transfer student who is a current resident in the state of Tennessee. To be eligible you must have a minimum cumulative high school (or college transfer) GPA of 2.9 on a 4.0 scale and an ACT score of 19 or above. The awards are worth $3000 and are automatically renewed each year for a maximum of four years, as long as the requirements are met. APS is open to students in all disciplines (you do not have to be a music major). The Academic Performance Scholarship in Music requires you to enroll in at least one ensemble each semester, which will be assigned by music faculty. Instrumental (except piano) APS recipients must also enroll in applied lessons each semester the scholarship is received (minimum of one credit).  More information about the university-level Academic Performance Scholarships is available here:  Academic Performance Scholarship

 

Creative Arts Scholarships

The Creative Arts in Music Scholarship is a special opportunity for non-Tennessee students with interests in the arts and arts related fields. ETSU is committed to providing excellent training and experiences for students in the arts and for students with interest in continued opportunities to pursue creative endeavors. The scholarship provides students with the complete cost of out-of-state tuition, so recipients pay the same rate as Tennessee residents. Students who are participating in another program which covers out-of-state tuition (including but not limited to Academic Common Market, border waiver, Honors-in-Discipline) are not eligible. Students must be new to ETSU to qualify for the scholarship; already enrolled students are not qualified. Both undergraduate and graduate students may apply for the scholarship unless otherwise noted. Complete information about the Creative Arts in Music Scholarship is available here: Creative Arts Scholarships
