The Delta Music Institute recognizes students through its scholarship and awards programs. In addition to general university scholarships, a number of scholarships are offered specifically to students who are pursuing an Entertainment Industry Studies degree (BS-EIS). Some DMI scholarships have specific additional requirements described below. Most of these scholarships are offered every year, but some are not. The dollar value of each award may also vary from year to year. Eligible students must be enrolled full-time at DSU and be a declared Entertainment Industry Studies (BS-EIS) major with an overall GPA of 3.0 or above.
To apply for a DMI scholarship, download and print the scholarship application form, complete it, and return it to: Delta Music Institute, DSU Box 3114, 1003 W. Sunflower Rd., Cleveland, MS 38733. In general, you need only submit one application to be considered for any DMI scholarship that you may be eligible for with the exception of the Morris Scholarship. Applications must be submitted by the designated deadline to be considered for the upcoming fall semester. Contact the DMI office for any additional information.
Applicants are notified of their award status by the start of the fall semester for March 1st applications and within two weeks for all other applications.
