Arrowbear Music Associates grants scholarships to any accredited music camp in the United States. Applications are always available beginning February 1 and are due in mid-April. Last summer we granted $52,813 in scholarships to 58 recipients. Most scholarships awarded are for one-half to three-fourths of the cost of a session. There are a limited number of full scholarships available. We grant scholarships to both choral and instrumental applicants. Recipients are chosen based on both need and merit. Nearly all of our recipients would not have been able to attend a summer music camp without financial assistance. We notify all applicants by the middle of May.
All components must be completed as explained in the directions and postmarked by the due date to be eligible for a scholarship. Late applications are NOT accepted for any reason.
We’d really like to encourage choral campers to apply for a scholarship. There is one full scholarship available and, of course, we offer partial scholarships to other choral applicants. We only receive one choral application last year, so some scholarships went unclaimed.
***Please be sure of your summer plans before you apply for a scholarship. Once awarded, scholarships are NOT transferable to another session, music camp, or person. Scholarship recipients are expected to stay at the camp for the entire session barring any unforeseen emergency.
Sponsor a Scholarship
We currently have 14 special scholarships sponsored by individuals or businesses. These special scholarships are awarded in their own name, the name of a loved one, or in the name of their business or organization. We are willing to work with you to create a scholarship for a specific age group, instrument, or section such as winds, brass, strings, etc. We will discuss options with you on how to fund the scholarship. Special scholarships should provide at least half of the cost a session. Please contact Laura Kusaba at 562-634-5158 or by email at LKusaba@sbcglobal.net if you are interested.
