The Symphony Association has awarded many thousands of dollars in scholarship funds to talented young musicians who play in the orchestra. For many of these students this scholarship is in addition to other awards given by the Music Department of the Financial Aid Office. Association bylaws state that Symphony Association Scholarships are offered to the very best incoming students who it is felt can make a significant contribution to the University of Wyoming Symphony Orchestra during their first year at the University of Wyoming.
Potential UW students interested in applying for Association scholarships need only to apply for financial aid from the Music Department. This will automatically make them eligible for Association scholarships as well.
