OU Band Scholarships

Thank you for your interest in auditioning for an OU Bands non-major scholarship! The OU Band awards non-major band scholarships to students majoring in fields other than music, who:

  • Demonstrate musical excellence on their instrument at a level that places the student among the top of all OU Band students
  • Participate in “The Pride of Oklahoma” Marching Band in the fall semesters of their collegiate career.
  • Participate in a large concert ensemble in the spring semesters of their collegiate career.

NOTE: Since our marching band instrumentation does not include double reeds, non-major double reed students perform in a large concert ensemble both semesters to fulfill their scholarship obligations.

Non-major band scholarships are awarded based on the student’s demonstrated musical abilities via audition, performance history, and the current instrumentation needs of the band program.

Once a scholarship has been awarded, it will be retained by the student, provided the student is making satisfactory progress toward their degree and meet all requirements of their scholarship contract.

Additional requirements for non-major band scholarship consideration

Students will email the following items before May 21st to Dr. Wolfe at wolfe@ou.edu.

  1. A resume listing the student's accomplishments in band and school; volunteer and work experience should be included as well.
  2. Two letters of recommendation. One letter from your band director, and the other letter can be from a teacher, coach, employer, etc.

Questions? Contact Audition Coordinator Dr. Brian Wolfe at wolfe@ou.edu.
