There are different types of scholarships available to both music majors and non-majors. These include fall service awards of $1,000 for participation in the Tiger Marching Band as well as a limited number of scholarships for performing in the concert ensembles. For Louisiana residents, the Louisiana Tuition Opportunity Program (TOPS) is available to qualified students. It is one of the most innovative and progressive student assistance programs in the nation. Music majors may qualify for a scholarship from the School of Music at the discretion of the applied faculty.
