Choir Scholarship Auditions
Each year 30-40 high school seniors audition for — and receive — choir scholarships to help make their Alma College education possible. If you are a singer, and if scholarship monies are important to your college choice, you are encouraged to audition for an Alma Choir scholarship.
Singers should contact Dr. Will Nichols at (989) 463-7221 or email@example.com. Scholarship auditions should be completed by February 1st of your senior year in high school. Students who are accepted for admission after the February 1st deadline are offered a three-week extension (from the date of your acceptance) to complete a choir scholarship audition.
Steps to take:
2. Contact Dr. Nichols to arrange a day to visit campus and sing your vocal scholarship audition. You are encouraged to do this on a weekday afternoon when you can sing with one of the choirs, meet some other singers, and complete your audition after the rehearsal. It is possible to arrange a vocal scholarship audition on a Scholar Summit day, or some Saturdays.
3. Come to campus and sing your best! A piano accompanist will be provided for you.
DISTINGUISHED VOCAL SCHOLARS
Students considering careers as choral conductors, music teachers, and professional singers/performers are eligible for Distinguished Vocal Scholarships of up to $8000 to help make it possible to explore these career paths. To be considered, the interested student should visit campus, meet with Dr. Nichols and complete a vocal audition by February 1st of your senior year in high school.
