Music-Related ScholarshipsCompetitions: Are there any private scholarships related to violin or music in general that don't apply to particular schools?
From Ruth Kuefler
Arts Recognition and Talent Search
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.
From Julie C.Most music scholarships are for seniors applying for colleges, as the scholarship goes to your freshman year in college or is spread throughout four years. If you want to get money for your talent, you should try some violin competitions!
