Graduate Assistantships are available to qualified, full-time graduate students in the School of Music. Applicants must be admitted to the program, have an outstanding academic record and present favorable recommendations.

Master’s and doctoral applicants will be considered for graduate assistantships as part of their application process. Assistantships provide tuition grants plus stipend and require approximately ten hours of work weekly.

Musicology students are also eligible for the Michael M. Winesanker Scholarship, named for the late distinguished scholar who served the TCU School of Music for more than 40 years.

The deadline for doctoral applications is December 1, and the deadline for master’s applications is February 15.

Learn more about graduate assistantships under the corresponding Graduate Area of Study, or contact the applied faculty member regarding graduate assistantships for the upcoming year.

All entering graduate students are required to take placement examinations during the first week of residency and must satisfy keyboard and theory proficiencies. All portions of the test must be satisfactorily completed prior to admission to candidacy.
