Marching / Pep Band Scholarships
Members of the Jacksonville University Athletic Bands who are enrolled full time at JU are eligible for scholarship according to the below criteria. This can be applied towards direct costs of attendance including tuition, room and board. Students must be enrolled in MUS-223/423 (JU Athletic Band) to receive the scholarship. To receive the full scholarship, attendance at all performances is required without exception. Attendance at rehearsals in accordance with the policies outlined in the course syllabus is also required.
Dual enrolled students are not eligible for scholarships, but receive a grant to cover the cost of the 1 hour credit and therefore can take the class free of charge. Visit the dual enrollment page for more information.
