At A-State we are able to help support our graduate students with various funding opportunities including Graduate Assistantships and privately funded scholarships.  Below is an overview of the different ways to fund a graduate degree at A-State.

  • Graduate Assistantships

    Students will apply for Graduate Assistantships through the Department of Music once admitted to the university.  The admissions procedure is an application and supplemental materials dependent on the student's degree program. Assistantships carry an out-of-state tuition waiver and a stipend totally approximately $9,000.  Assistantship duties vary depending on the student's degree program and needs of the Department of Music.  Priority deadline for consideration is February 1.

    Woodwind, brass, or percussion students who are majoring in Wind Conducting, Instrumental Performance, or Music Education may wish to be considered for Graduate Assistantships through the A-State Bands, which provide additional source of funding and responsibilities with the A-State Bands program.
