Your Financial Aid Offer

The Office of Financial Aid administers all of Agnes Scott’s scholarships, grants, loans and federal work study aimed at helping students and families make Agnes Scott a possibility. Agnes Scott is consistently rated a “Best Value School” by U.S. News & World Report for this reason.\

The first piece of the financial aid offer are Agnes Scott Scholarships. For most of our scholarships, students must simply apply to the college. Applicants who submit their complete Common Application and all supporting materials by the Early Action II deadline (January 16) are automatically considered for merit-based scholarships ranging from $25,000-$28,000 a year. These scholarships are awarded based on factors including academic achievement, community service, leadership and extracurricular involvement. For example, check out our Agnes Scott $100K Promise.

We do have a small handful of application-based scholarships. Review those and apply below:

This scholarship is awarded to incoming first-year students who are promising music students, and who demonstrate scholastic ability, talent and seriousness of thought, purpose and endeavor. Students who have financial need will be given priority.

The scholarship, which is awarded at varying levels from $500 to $5,000 per year, is renewable each year as long as the student meets scholarship requirement, including music class and ensemble requirements. This scholarship will stack on to any other earned academic merit scholarships.

A video audition is required as well as the application below. Each applicant should prepare two compositions in contrasting styles for their primary area of applied music (for example: one lyric, one virtuosic; or one Baroque, one Romantic). In addition, singers are encouraged to audition singing vocal works in two different languages (one of which may be English). It is recommended that singers and pianists audition from memory.

Only the music faculty will hear the auditions, after which they will rank the applicants on the basis of musicality, technique and level of difficulty of the repertoire performed at the audition.

For instruments other than piano and guitar, applicants are encouraged to prepare at least one piece with an accompaniment.

Applicants should submit the Hopkins Scholarship application and their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by Friday, March 22. Applicants may log in to the scholarship application using their admission applicant portal information (received after submitting their Common Application).
