School of Performing Arts Scholarships

  • MSUM is pleased to offer thousands of dollars in Performing Arts scholarships for current and incoming music, theatre, and dance students. This would include scholarships for majors and non-majors who would like to perform in an ensemble or production but plan to major in another field. When combined with our amazingly low tuition, affordable housing, and the vibrant arts scene found in the rapidly expanding Fargo-Moorhead region, MSUM offers an exceptional value for the aspiring actor, musician, or dancer!

    Students can also apply for general university scholarships through the Office of Scholarship & Financial Aid. Application deadlines will apply.
