Filene Music Scholarship Competition

Four to six $60,000 Filene Music Scholarships are awarded each year through a performance competition coordinated by Skidmore's Department of Music.

The scholarship package—$15,000 per year toward tuition, plus lesson fees—is awarded independent of any additional need-based aid. Financial aid applicants who demonstrate financial need will receive Skidmore grant aid in addition to their scholarships.

Scholarship Payments

The annual scholarship of $15,000 is awarded to competition winners without consideration of financial need, and it is credited in $7,500 installments to the recipient's account in the fall and spring semesters. Financial aid applicants who demonstrate financial need will receive Skidmore grant aid in addition to their Filene Scholarships. For more information on Skidmore grant assistance, contact the Office of Financial Aid, 518-580-5750.  

Scholarship awards are renewed each year if the student continues in good academic standing and receives the recommendation of the Department of Music.
