IN UNISON Scholarship Program


SLSO IN UNISON College Scholarship

In a deliberate and strategic effort to encourage diversity in the arts, the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra provides up to six scholarships for young African American undergraduate students who are studying a music-related field at University of Missouri – St. Louis. In addition to scholarship assistance, students are provided the opportunity to receive mentoring with the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra staff and musicians, and are provided with opportunities to participate in select concert events. IN UNISON Scholars are selected based on recommendation from the faculty and administration at UMSL, or from among high school students who have an existing relationship with the SLSO and who elect to study in a music-related program at UMSL. Selected students typically remain in the IU Scholarship program throughout their undergraduate career.


IN UNISON Fellowships

In an endeavor to provide real-world experience that can be leveraged into employment in a music-related field, a limited number of tailored fellowship opportunities are provided to select IN UNISON Scholars who are near to graduation or are recently graduated. Students receive a small stipend to help cover expenses, and are selected based on leadership skills and positive academic standing demonstrated throughout their undergraduate careers.
