Undergraduate Scholarship 

The Department of Music at Texas Southern University's goal is to encourage the pursuit of music as a profession and provide financial assistance to qualifying applicants interested in completing a music degree at Texas Southern University. In addition to scholarships offered by the university, our ensemble directors may award scholarships to musicians who excel in their art. These scholarships are awarded based on auditions, academic standing, and references. For more information, please contact the ensemble director of your area below.
