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.

Students receive $30 per game.
Scholarships are distributed at the end of the fall semester for games played before
winter break, and then again at the end of the basketball season for games played

Note: Be advised that these are scholarships and not stipends. All students will receive the full benefit of the scholarship, however they may be applied in a myriad of ways depending on the individual student's financial aid status. Occasionally a student may receive a cash reimbursement if there is a positive JU account balance and they are below federal financial aid maximums, however this is not the norm.
