Handbell ringer

The River City Ringers of Omaha are dedicated to advancing the musical art of handbell/hand chime ringing through performance and community involvement.  

In the wake of COVID, many organizations are eliminating their handbell programs, leaving young ringers with limited options to continue their pursuit of this beautiful instrument. In honor of their 35th year of handbell performance the River City Ringers want to help keep the next generation's love of handbell ringing alive.

This scholarship seeks to support students who are passionate about handbell ringing so they have the encouragement they need to continue pursuing their craft.

Any high school or undergraduate student who is currently ringing with a handbell choir and wishes to pursue handbell ringing with a college handbell choir may apply for this scholarship.

To apply, tell us about your musical experience, how you want to advance the art of handbell ringing, and the names of any arrangers or composers who have created pieces you’ve loved playing.

Selection Criteria:
Ambition, Drive, Passion
