When you join the Music and Theatre program at UW-Eau Claire, you’ll quickly realize just how many amazing opportunities are available to you. Whether that means putting on the performance of a lifetime here or in another country, paying for college and the experiences that come with it can sometimes be expensive. The good news is there are several scholarships specifically for Blugolds who are involved in music and the theatre arts. But that’s not all—other scholarships based on your interests, future career goals and more are available as well.
The Music and Theatre Arts Department offers scholarships of over $60,000 to students annually. These scholarships include, Viennese Ball Scholarships, which total over $30,000 and are available to incoming and continuing students in both music and theatre, the Cassandra Ball Egdahl Scholarships for multiple first-year students in music, the Jerry Young Tuba and Euphonium Scholarship for an incoming tuba or euphonium student, multiple Choral Music Endowment Scholarships, the Roger Groenewold Scholarship for an incoming or transferring theatre student, and many more!

Cohen String Scholarship
Watch to learn how Blugolds are supported in pursuing their passion of music through opportunities like the Eileen Phillips Cohen String Scholarship. All four members of the Eileen Phillips Cohen String Quartet receive full in-state tuition for the academic year, and there is the potential for the scholarship to cover a full four-year degree. Financial need is not a consideration. Eileen Phillips Cohen (1926-2017) was a long-time member (violinist) and supporter of the University Symphony Orchestra. This generous scholarship reflects Eileen Phillips Cohen's love of music and specifically her support of the University Symphony Orchestra.
