My D wants to major in vocal performance/music ed. My husband and I are both teachers (he at the college level; I teach part-time middle school), so we are definitely not rolling in the money. Are there certain schools that tend to offer generous scholarships? For instance, we live in Michigan, but I've noticed that UM does not seem to offer many scholarships, according to what I saw on the CC spreadsheet of school acceptances, whereas IU seems to offer scholarships frequently. We also live only 4 hours from Lawrence University, which seems to offer more scholarships than others, but I am not sure my D would be happy at such a small school.
Any advice at what schools to aim for that we could afford would be very appreciated!
