Children of musicians who are pursuing post-high school education are eligible to apply for the Music Performance Trust Fund’s Music Family Scholarship. This brand new program is open to young adults who have completed high school and will be attending trade school, community college, 4-year college or university as a full-time student for the fall 2020 semester.
Applicants do not need to be studying for a music-related degree, but they need to share an essay describing their experience growing up in a music family. Up to $100,000 in funds will be awarded to students. All scholarship applications must be received by 8 PM ET/ 5 PM PT on Saturday, August 1, 2020.
