Grand Traverse Musicale will offer scholarships in four performance categories: Strings, Winds & Percussion, Keyboard, and Voice. Scholarships will be awarded to grades 7-8 and 9-11. Seniors planning to study music in college, please see the College Awards page in the Scholarships drop-down menu above. Students may be home-schooled or enrolled in private or public school anywhere in the 5 county area (Grand Traverse, Leelanau, Benzie, Antrim, Kalkaska). They should have at least one year of music study. Vocalists need to be thirteen years of age by March 1, 2024. There are no age restrictions for instrumentalists. Only one application may be accepted per student. Two instruments may be played as long as they are within the same genre (e.g. piano and organ). Please use accompaniment if your music has accompaniment. Only those applying for College Awards need to provide copies of their music (more details in the Scholarships drop-down menu above).
The award may be used for lessons, a music camp, summer music program or instrument purchase and will be awarded when the lessons, camp or program have been arranged by the student. The award will be sent to the teacher or camp/program in the student's name.
