  • The Kevin and Selma Moore Music Scholarship will be available to incoming wind players. Available to flute, clarinet, saxophone, oboe or bassoon majors.
  • The Donald and Mary Miller Guitar Scholarship. This scholarship is available to matriculated, full or part-time guitar majors who demonstrate talent on the guitar. Available to Classical Guitar majors.

Available to Current Music Majors

  • Current piano majors may audition annually for the Barbara Micale Piano Scholarship
  • The OCC Music Department’s Performance Honors Awards are decided by competitive audition during every spring semester. The students must be recommended by their private lesson instructor in order to be eligible to participate. The winners of those competitive auditions received scholarship assistance towards their OCC expenses as well as performances on the annual Performance Honors Awards. The top award winner also performs for the annual college-wide Honors Convocation.

Information about these scholarships is available from the Music Department and should be a part of every music student’s application process.
