Scholarship eligibility

Everyone who auditions before our last official audition date is eligible for a scholarship, as long as you have also been accepted to CSU. There is no separate scholarship application. The Woodruff Award is the only exception--it does have a separate, video-only application. Details are here.  If you live close enough to come and play a live audition and also want to apply for the Woodruff Award, you need to do both.
