Tuba Scholarships

Postby sailracer90 » Sat Mar 07, 2009 11:45 pm

Hi, does anyone know of any good tuba scholarships? I REALLY need some help for college (undergrad). The schools I'm looking at are LSU, UGA, Alabama, and Tennessee. I live in GA, so I mostly need help on the other three. Any suggestions? Thanks

Thanks, Actually, LSU pretty much put me at in-state due to an academic scholarship of a little under $9k making it cheaper than UGA right now... Im just worried about getting into the LSU and UGA music schools. LSU is accepting 3 undergrad tubas, and UGA is accepting 2. UT already gave me their music scholarship and i missed the academic scholarship deadline for both UT and Alabama... All my auditions are done, last one was Alabama today.

A good way to search for scholarships is to go to sites such as http://www.scholarships.com/. There is a lot of money out there you just need to apply. Sometimes scholarships don't even get awarded because no one applies.

fastweb.com has info and links to tons of scholarships, grants, other monies. And they have a quiz/survey that will match you to the scholarships you're eligible for.


Assuming you're attempting to get a performance degree from on of those schools, just go to which ever one would be cheaper. As an undergrad performance major, you're essentially paying all those thousands of dollars to sit in a room for umpteen hours a day, which, really, you can do anywhere.

How are your grades? Since you are in state, if you maintain a "B" average the state of Georgia will pay your tuition. I'm assuming that the HOPE scholarship still exists of course. It was nice...I never had to pay tuition while I was at UGA.

Hi. I'm really new to this website (I happened upon it when I googled tuba scholarships). It sounds like some of the members may be able to help me out too. My daughter is going to go to college in the fall to major in Music Education, with her principal instrument as tuba. She has been accepted into the four music programs that she auditioned for (U. Delaware, West Chester U. in PA, Penn State University, and Moravian College in Bethlehem, PA), but except for Moravian we haven't heard anything about scholarships from the schools.

Does anyone know anything about these music programs? Thanks for any insights.

Congrats on the acceptance. I don't know much about the programs in question, but I'm sure some other folks here do. If your curious about scholarships, I would contact somebody at the school for info. Either the band director or her future private instructor. Best of luck.

I think Scholarships for tuba playing are dependent of the school. For example, I received $1600 from Chris Olka and the tuba studio at UW Seattle, and $5000 from the music dept at Pacific Lutheran University. For both of them I had to go to the campus and audition for their music staff.

I also flew out to Northwestern to audition, but that was for the music dept and I don't beleive they give out music scholarships.
