Music Audition Day

The Music Audition Day is usually scheduled each year for the last Saturday in February. This audition is for scholarships and/or admission to the department as a music major or minor. Auditions may also be scheduled by appointment. Here is the downloadable audition application form (word processing document). You can also call the music office at (208) 282-3636 for the audition application form. Questions about admission requirements can be answered by the music office. E-mail: music@isu.edu

Scholarships

Music scholarships are awarded to majors and non-majors on the basis of musical ability. Many scholarship awards are given to students who participate in band, choir or orchestra. Piano scholarships are also available. Applications for all music awards may be obtained from the Music Department. Please state specifically your performance area when making scholarship inquiries in order to channel your request to the proper director. Students who wish to be considered for scholarship assistance in the next academic year should return their applications by March 1. ISU will utilize every possible source to help students finance their study. Some assistance is also available through the Office of Financial Aids.

In addition to Band, Choir, Orchestra, and Piano Accompanist awards, the following endowed scholarships are available. Only one application form is needed in order to be considered for all endowed scholarships. Specific requirements and the scholarship application form can be downloaded (word processing document), or obtained from the music office. Incoming freshmen and transfer students are eligible for all of these scholarships except the Ruth S. and E. Chilton Phoenix Memorial Scholarships.

The Pocatello Music Club also regularly offers scholarships to ISU students through competitive auditions administered by the Music Department. These auditions are held on campus each semester for currently enrolled full-time music majors who have at least a 2.0 grade point average. The first place winner in each category (vocal, piano, instrumental) receives the Mark Neiwirth Scholarship and the second place winner in each category (vocal, piano, instrumental) receives the Pocatello Music Club Scholarship. The previous semester winners are not eligible for the next semester's audition.

The Idaho Federation of Music Clubs grants scholarships through an annual statewide audition.
