George Fox University Music Scholarship

Priority deadline: Jan. 30, applications accepted throughout spring semester.

Scholarship auditions will be remote for Spring 2021. All students must submit a video (click the button below to see requirements), then participate in a virtual interview, via Zoom, with one or more George Fox University music professors. In this interview, we will ask you questions about your musical experience, musical goals, and answer any questions you have about music at George Fox or any other questions related to the University. You will not perform during the live interview.
