Music Scholars is a unique scholarship opportunity for Honors- and EC Scholars-eligible students who wish to major in music. Music Scholars benefit from a generous scholarship award beyond the scholarship and benefits awarded by the Honors College and/or EC Scholars*. The Music Scholars program also includes special leadership, community engagement, and mentorship experiences. Freshmen Music Scholars will live and learn in a collegial residence environment.
The School of Music at ECU is one of the premier music schools in the Southeast with accreditations from the National Association of Schools of Music and American Music Therapy Association, an intentionally small and high-quality student body, and some of the finest facilities, resources, and performances in the state. Students who are interested in this elite opportunity must be accepted into the Honors College and the School of Music, which requires a performance audition in addition to the Honors College application.
Students who are awarded a position in the Music Scholars program must maintain the following standards throughout the program:
- Earn a minimum GPA (both overall and in music courses) of 3.5
- Maintain an acceptable level of personal deportment
- Participate in required group and enrichment activities
Admission to the Music Scholars Program requires an audition prior to Selection Sunday, a required Honors College event where Music Scholar finalists interview with the Music Scholars selection committee.
