Exciting New Scholarship Opportunity for Music Students at Ave Maria University
The Ave Maria University Department of Music is pleased to announce that
three types of scholarship are now available for music majors.
Students who apply and audition for the music major will be considered
for a brand new merit scholarship for musical ability. This is in
addition to excellent academic scholarships that AMU offers based on GPA
as well as ACT/SAT scores. Finally, private lessons in voice, piano,
and organ are subsidized for music majors at AMU.
Ave Maria University offers a comprehensive music education that goes
beyond the curricular bounds that even large schools of music employ.
Our broad-based curriculum will prepare students for musical leadership
in various capacities and circumstances. Because we focus on the
keyboard and vocal arts, we provide our students with a richly
individualized academic and performance experience. Personal attention
to the musical and intellectual formation of our students, with a
special emphasis on the musical heritage of the Catholic Church, forms
the basis of our educational philosophy.
Many of our students have gone on to serve the Church in music in
parishes across the United States, and several of our graduates have
been admitted to highly competitive graduate programs in music at such
institutions as the Westminster Choir College of Rider University. Two
graduates are currently enrolled in doctoral programs in organ
performance at the University of Southern California and the University
The next Auditions Weekend at Ave Maria University will be April 5-6.
