Music scholarships are potentially available to any student at Georgetown College. The available scholarships fall into two distinct categories: ¬†departmental scholarships, and endowed scholarships in music. ¬†Departmental scholarships are generally awarded to incoming freshmen and transfer students as¬†four-year renewable awards.¬† These scholarships are renewable each year based upon the student’s successful academic progress and successful participation in the appropriate ensembles. ¬†Departmental scholarships are awarded based on an audition. ¬†Endowed scholarships are non-renewable and typically awarded to current students.
The Kentucky Association of College Music Departments (KACMD) has set up the following guidelines for accepting music scholarships:
The Kentucky Association of College Music Departments strives to assist and support a scholarship system that has integrity and is fair to all concerned. It is the Association’s intent to enforce the stipulations presented here and to help students avoid difficulties.
Following the music audition, the Department of Music makes scholarship recommendations to the Director of Student Financial Aid based on performance, previous academic record and interview at the time of the audition. ¬†The music scholarship, in combination with other institutional dollars, may not exceed the maximum institutional amount.¬† Students, awarded a substantial scholarship in academics, for example, may not be eligible to receive a music scholarship if the academic scholarship reaches the institutional limit, even though the department may recommend a student for a music scholarship.
Music scholarships will be reviewed each semester by the music faculty and Office of Financial Aid.
Students should consider all institutional scholarships options in addition to music.
