Organ Music Scholarship

Music scholarships are available for students who have contributed significantly to their high school or community music program and intend to actively participate in one or more of the following Dordt music areas: vocal, instrumental or keyboard. Applicants need not be music majors; however, they must submit an application form and a music instructor’s recommendation. Organ audition requirements include three pieces:

  • A composition written before 1750
  • A composition written after 1750
  • A hymn

The audition can be accomplished in one of three ways: attending the annual on-campus Music Audition Day, scheduled on the first Friday in December, to audition in person (contact the Admissions Office for details); scheduling an appointment with the Admissions Office to audition in person on a Dordt Campus Visit Day; or submitting a recorded audition video. The selected option must be completed by December 1 for priority consideration. Music scholarships are renewable for an additional three consecutive years provided the recipient maintains a cumulative 2.00 GPA and successfully contributes to the music program as determined by the music department directors.
