Whitman College invites you to audition for the Campbell and Higley Music Scholarships. Both are four-year renewable awards.
Regardless of potential major, the Campbell Music Scholarships are awarded to candidates for admission to Whitman College who demonstrate outstanding musical talent. Winners shall receive a minimum of $500, a maximum of $2000 per year, in addition to the monetary support offered by the College in the form of other scholarships, loans, and employment. All scholarship recipients receive additional lesson scholarships on their respective instruments.
The Higley Music Scholarship is our most prestigious award. It provides up to $7,000 per year plus a lesson scholarship to a select few incoming students of exceptional ability who will become music majors.
All scholarship recipients are required to perform in the appropriate Whitman ensemble (band, orchestra, choir). Pianists must accompany to fulfill ensemble requirements.
Auditions are offered for voice, piano and organ, and all orchestral instruments. Auditioners should perform selections from the classical repertoire with the exception of jazz artists. For example, string and wind players should perform a movement of a concerto or sonata. Pianists should perform works at least on the level of a Bach 3-part Invention or a movement of a Beethoven sonata. Vocalists should perform two art songs (one may be an aria), at least one in a foreign language. Jazz performers may perform a standard tune plus improvisation. You are urged to audition in person, however, if you cannot appear in person, an audition by high quality CD or video tape recording is acceptable.*

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!
Shed some stress and gain some confidence. Cappex - College search made simple.
