Music Scholarships

Music Talent Scholarship

Music is far more than entertainment. Music allows you to express joy, sadness, anger, love, celebration, worship and grief. It also has the ability to soften a heart, lift a spirit, enrage an individual or group, or bring a person to tears. Performers also build character traits such as hard work through practicing, public performance, teamwork and perseverance while doing what they love. The University of Olivet’s smaller size and rich music history allows us to meet the career goals of every student regardless of their major.

Scholarship Opportunity

*Open to Non-Music Majors*
The Music Talent Scholarship is awarded to students who have a passion for music. If you sing in a choir, play in a jazz band or play the piano, guitar or other instrument and want to continue to develop your knowledge and skills while having opportunities to perform, you could earn a Music Talent Scholarship. The University of Olivet is one of the few colleges that offer scholarships to non-music majors in addition to our music majors.

• Earn up to $2,000 per academic year.
• Non-music majors are encouraged to apply.
• Audition required.



Gospel Choir Scholarship

Students around the world often set aside their love of Gospel music when it comes time for college. The focus shifts to majors, minors and career goals. We get that, but whether your goal is to become an accountant or zoologist, you shouldn’t have to give up on your music. At The University of Olivet, we believe being a part of the Gospel Choir is something every interested student should have the opportunity to do. You can even earn a scholarship along the way!

Scholarship Opportunities

Scholarships are awarded to students who have a passion for Gospel music. Students may earn up to $2,000 per academic year. Students will be awarded scholarships based on talent and potential, regardless of previous experience in performing.
