Goin' Band Scholarship

Scholarship applications are currently under review. 

We are happy to provide Goin' Band Scholarships to motivated and talented students who value being involved in a band program rich in history, substance, and fellowship. These scholarships are made possible by the generous gifts provided by various donors, including the Goin' Band Association. These awards are for any incoming or returning Goin' Band student member, regardless of major, and can be awarded based on talent and/or need. Awards vary in amounts up to $1,000.00 for one semester. In order to receive one of these scholarships, you must have been accepted into the university at the time of your application, enroll in the Goin' Band course, and complete a successful audition for the Goin' Band.

Scholarships will be dispensed during the Fall 2022 semester. Please contact the Goin' Band office if you have any questions regarding available scholarships.
