The WSU School of Music offers talent-based music awards to music students. There are awards for music majors, music minors and non-majors who are ensemble participants. The awards vary depending on the student's skill level and experience. Awards are for one year. Each spring semester, students apply for renewal of awards.

For returning music majors, outstanding performers are selected during juries at the end of fall semester and perform in competition the following January for award renewal. Other returning students apply for renewal during the spring.

Cougar Marching Band

The Cougar Marching Band (CMB) sponsors a Band Stipend Program for participation. These awards are made in addition to any other scholarships or awards and are paid as stipends at the conclusion of each semester.

Total Funding

Music Program funding each year provides a total of about $75,000 to incoming and returning students. In addition, the Cougar Marching Band stipend program totals about $37,000 per year. Except for the WSU Regents Scholars, students may add Music Awards to all other awards and scholarships received.
