  • Scholarship Information

    • There is no separate scholarship application
    • Music scholarships, available only to full-time music majors, are merit and/or talent-based and are given for ability as demonstrated through the audition and academic performance. In some cases, financial need may also be considered in making such determinations.  
    • All music scholarships are applied only to tuition and the total of all sources of aid, scholarships, grants, loans, etc., cannot exceed the total cost of attendance and, in some cases is limited by need.

  • Stamps Scholars Program

    The Stamps Scholars Program is a special scholarship offered to a select group of incoming freshmen each year to form chamber ensembles. The Stamps Ensemble Scholarship covers the cost of tuition and fees, an on-campus double room in a University of Miami residential college, and a 7 Day All Access meal plan for up to four academic years (eight consecutive semesters). Enrichment fees support additional activities related to the Stamps Ensemble and are approved in advance by the Dean.

    The Frost School of Music Stamps Scholars program differs from the University of Miami Stamps Scholarship.

  • Instrument Insurance

    Students are expected to acquire an appropriate instrument and adequate instrument insurance prior to beginning their degree program. Questions about instrument selection should be directed to studio professors. Please note that financial aid does not cover these expenses.
