Scholarships

Chamber music and solo performance Scholarships are available. Priority is given to those showing highest merit as demonstrated on the audition. Financial need is used only as a secondary consideration. Please be aware that large scholarship requests without accompanying merit may jeopardize your acceptance. Requests for scholarship received after the application is processed or that do not contain the required scholarship information cannot be considered.

All Merit qualified students age 16 and older may receive a work scholarship as part of their award package. Work study awards are valued at US$700 for approximately 10 hours of work per week. Payment is made upon completion of the work at the end of the summer. For a list of positions available and descriptions go to Work study Positions.

Scholarship students are expected to be leaders in performance and chamber music and role models in discipline. Scholarship students must arrive on time and not depart early, as there may be performance obligations to fulfill.

IRS forms are not needed to apply for scholarship. Students that arrive late, depart early or attend for a partial session are NOT eligible for scholarship or work study positions.

Please investigate your local community (religious groups, schools, arts or civic organizations, and private donors) for alternate sources of financial aid.
