The University of West Georgia seeks to achieve preeminence in providing educational excellence in a personal environment through an intellectually stimulating and supportive community for its students, faculty, and staff.
The Charles Wadsworth Music Scholarship was established in 1990 by a citizens group from Newnan, Georgia, to honor Charles Wadsworth. The scholarship is awarded to an incoming University of West Georgia music major who demonstrates artistic excellence and potential as an instrumentalist or vocalist. This $2,000-per-year scholarship, renewable by audition for up to four years, is awarded to one winning instrumentalist of vocalist in a performance competition. This award cannot be combined with any additional Music or Foundation scholarships, but it can be combined with the HOPE scholarship.
All incoming freshmen who are eligible for admission to the University of West Georgia and who are planning to major in music must audition before the music faculty on their principal performing instrument or voice for admission to the music major. A scholarship audition may serve as a student's entrance audition. Students are evaluated to indicate basic knowledge of music and to aid in proper placement and advising.
The music major entering the Department of Music by transfer must submit an official transcript of all previous college work to the Chair of the Department of Music in addition to the transcript sent to the UWG Office of Admissions. The applicant should be prepared to validate achievements in the area of applied music, music theory, aural skills, keyboard proficiency, and the history and literature of music. Plans for the removal of any deficiency must be initiated during the first registration period. Transfer students must have completed the required credits in lower-division applied study (MUSC 2600A-Q) and pass the level-change examination in order to register for upper-division applied study (MUSC 4600A-Q: Principal Applied). For transfer students who have completed the required credits in lower-division applied, the level-change examination may take place during the entrance audition. Otherwise it will occur during the applied jury examination in the semester when the student is ready for advancement from the lower-division to the upper-division level of study.

We help students and colleges connect. In the past year, we've helped over 600 colleges make over two million connections with students! Cappex allows colleges to search anonymous student profiles to find the students they'd like to connect with. It makes the college admissions process easy by offering college search and lots of college resources, with detailed information on admissions, scholarships and financial aid.
Best of all, the students stay in control. Students review messages from colleges in their own "College Center" here on the site. The student chooses which colleges to share their contact information with, keeping their information hidden from the rest.
Cappex recently launched MeritAid.com, to help students learn about college options they might have otherwise assumed were out of their reach. Colleges are investing over $11 billion annually in merit aid and academic scholarships to attract and retain students, and we want to help them get the word out!
