• Grants are awarded on the basis of talent and performance ability.
• Awards up to $4,000 are available per academic year.
• Contest-type material is appropriate, with two pieces in contrasting styles. The performance will be followed by a brief evaluation of sight-reading ability.

• Candidates should apply for admission to Drury University before the audition.
• Students applying for admission to the Department of Music to pursue a major in music (BA, BME, BMT) must prepare a ten-minute audition in their major performing area (instrumental or vocal).
• Literature should be similar to that outlined above.
• All new students will be required to take a theory/ear training and history assessment exam upon arrival on campus.
