Scholarships and Auditions

Talent grants are awarded for participation in ULM instrumental and vocal ensembles.

Regardless of their intended major, students must audition in order to be considered for a talent grant. Talent grant awards are renewable on a yearly basis.

Students whose permanent residence is outside of Louisiana may be awarded an out-of-state tuition waiver. For more information on financial aid and university scholarships, visit the ULM Office of Financial Aid and ULM Scholarship Office.

Details on the audition process for prospective instrumental, keyboard, and vocal majors can be found on the Instrumental Auditions page or the Vocal Auditions page. Should you have any additional questions or concerns, don't hesitate to contact us. Auditions periodically occur off-campus in local schools if that would be more feasible for you. Please contact us if that is a better option for you or your prospective students.

Before being accepted as a music or music education major, a student must successfully complete an entrance audition (personal or solo performance recording) and a theory placement examination. For further information, please contact us via phone at (318) 342-3811 or email at bratcher@ulm.edu
