Marching Band Scholarship

TUMB merit scholarship awards are granted to participating members of the band, regardless of academic major. Awards vary, though they generally cover tuition charges for band course enrollment.  Awards renew as the student remains fully participating and is in good standing with the university. Audition requirements are available at under “JOIN”. For more information, contact Barry Spanier, Director of Bands.

Marching Band Scholarships are available to incoming freshmen, regardless of academic major.  Additional scholarship money may be available based on quality of audition and instrumentation needed for the TUMB.  These awards are granted through the recruitment process with the Director of Bands.  Awards renew automatically every year that the student remains enrolled in the band course and is in good standing with the university.  
Tulane Marching Band Scholarships are partial scholarships. Students may not receive a Marching Band Scholarship in any amount exceeding the student's financial aid Cost of Attendance less all other financial aid.

General Renewal Conditions

The scholarships may be renewed each year provided the student satisfies band service requirements, maintains at least a 2.300 cumulative grade point average and continuous enrollment as an undergraduate.  Students with non-continuous enrollment may be considered for the scholarship in subsequent terms depending on funds available.
