Music-Related Scholarships

November 24, 2005 at 03:35 PM · Hi all, I'm a high school junior getting serious about scholarships (hey, I figure we musicians can use all the help we can get). Anyway, I'm having a hard time finding private scholarships that make use of my music abilities. Here's what I have so far:

Arts Recognition and Talent Search

School Band and Orchestra Magazing Essay Contest

Adventure Scholars Arts Leadership Scholarship

Also, there's a bunch scholarhips from the National Foundation of Music Clubs, but I don't know how they work or if they're worth it.

Has anyone heard of these or done them? What other ones do you know of. To help narrow down suggestions, I should let you know that I'm homeschooled, not a prodigy (but fairly advanced). I am looking for suggestions of any scholarships requiring audition tapes, essays, resumes, etc. related to violin or music in general that don't apply to particular schools.

Thanks!!
