“Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy,” -Ludwig van Beethoven.
Music makes the world a better place and allows people to express their passion and creativity. Unfortunately, many students don’t pursue their musical dreams and instead work towards fields they consider to be easier to break into.
This scholarship aims to encourage high school students to pursue music so they can achieve their creative goals.
Any high school senior who is an aspiring musician may apply for this scholarship.
To apply, talk about the role music has played in your life thus far (instruments played, extracurricular activities surrounding music) as well as your future goals as a professional musician. It is optional to add video footage displaying your music.
