Program and UIS Links
UIS is excited to offer a $10,000 music scholarship for non-music majors. We are still recruiting for Fall 2013. Students may audition in person or by sending a video recording to the department. Submit a cover letter and a resume which includes musical training and participation in music activities, and the names and phone numbers of at least two references. Audition performances should include major and minor scales and two short pieces in contrasting styles (one slow and lyrical; one faster and more technical). Students may set up an audition time by calling Dr. Abigail Walsh (217) 206-7549. Read more about UIS Music scholarships.
