Scholarship Opportunity at Ave Maria

This just came in:

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 of Iowa.

The next Auditions Weekend at Ave Maria University will be April 5-6.  For more information, or to schedule an audition, please contact Professor Rebecca Ostermann at
