If you're hoping to attend the Conservatory at Pacific, don't let finances get in your way.

In addition to need-based aid awarded by Pacific's Financial Aid Office, the Conservatory awards Merit Scholarships based on the audition and interview (if applicable). In most cases, scholarships are awarded to music majors only, however, under certain circumstances, merit scholarships may be awarded to non-music majors if it is determined that there is a specific need.

The Conservatory's undergraduate students receive over 3 million dollars in combined academic and music merit scholarships.

There is no special application for merit based scholarships at Pacific; applicants are automatically considered for both academic and music scholarships after submission of a completed application and audition.

Please note: If the scholarship holder transfers out of the Conservatory, or if the scholarship holder chooses to no longer participate as specified in the scholarship agreement, the scholarship is withdrawn.

For more information about music scholarships, contact Assistant Dean for Conservatory Admissions Frederick Peterbark at 209.946.2418.
