Experiential Learning Fund

Funds are provided by donors to BYU and to the School of Music and are awarded to students by the School of Music. Students may seek Experiential Learning Funding for participation in experiences such as conferences, workshops, regional, national, and international competitions, masterclasses, and summer music programs, as well as for research-based projects.

Students may not use experiential learning funds for individual lessons or graduate school auditions.

For non-research-based experiences, the student’s teacher sends an application in behalf of the student. For research-based projects, students apply for the funds themselves.
