YSM Student Work

In additional to financial aid, there are many paid positions for student work.  The Music in Schools Initiative and the Undergraduate Lessons program provide teaching opportunities for current students. Students earn $25 per hour if hired for these activities. In addition, pianists may be hired as accompanists, and there are many administrative and operations jobs at the school that pay $11–$15 per hour.

STUDENT EMPLOYMENT

International Students

Students coming from countries which have currency restrictions should make necessary arrangements before arriving so that they will have access to funds to be used for living expenses. Also, before an I-20 will be issued, students must give appropriate evidence of support. If you are being supported by a foreign government or agency, you must have a signed statement attesting to the level and time period of your support. There are no loans available for international students.

Belding Fund

The Belding Fund provides some financial assistance to students who travel for professional engagements, including performances, auditions, and competitions.

After completing this form, please submit it to the YSM Business Office in Sprague Hall.
