MUN Music has a vigorous scholarship program for both entering and continuing students. Approximately one-third of students receive scholarships in music ranging from $500 to $2500. Some are renewable. Students also benefit from Memorial University’s broad entrance scholarship program. With a few exceptions scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic and musical merit and do not require an application.
Memorial University of Newfoundland acknowledges the academic success of its students in various ways. One of these is by naming students to the Dean's list of the top 10% of students.
Students whose academic performance has merited being named to the Dean's List in all years of their undergraduate study will be honoured by being presented with the Dr Maureen Volk Award in recognition of sustained academic and musical excellence across all years of undergraduate study.
Established in 2013, the Dr. Tom Gordon Award is based on both academic and musical achievement and is awarded to the most outstanding student graduating from the Master of Music degree program.
Established in 2013, and awarded to an outstanding student graduating from the M.A. or Ph.D. in Ethnomusicology, the Dr. Beverley Diamond Award recognizes significant achievement in fieldwork and music scholarship.
