Each year Peabody offers fellowships to a select cohort of admitted DMA students who demonstrate excellence in both academic scholarship and musical performance. Beginning with the 2019-2020 academic year the Dean’s DMA fellowships will cover tuition and fees plus a stipend for the two required years of full-time residency.

All admitted DMA students will be automatically considered for the fellowships, with the final decision about the awards being made by the Dean of the Institute, in consultation with the DMA Committee. Current Peabody students who are auditioning for the DMA program are eligible for the fellowship, but current DMA students will not be eligible.

An additional DMA fellowship is available each year specifically for a qualified DMA applicant who is from a historically underrepresented background (Black, Hispanic/Latinx, Native American, or Pacific Islander/Native Hawaiian).
