These fellowship competitions are very competitive and following auditions, music faculty makes recommendations to the Chair of Graduate Studies for nomination consideration to the university-wide competitions. Approximately 6 students are nominated from the School of Music.

*You must submit an application and upload required materials with the application, prior to scheduling an audition.* If you have not yet done so, go to Graduate Students — How to Apply.
