Each spring MDI Music Boosters offers summer scholarships to incoming freshmen and returning MDIHS music students who are pursuing music lessons or attending music camp during summer vacation. While there is uncertainty about what opportunities will be available due to COVID-19 this year, we still want to support our student’s musical pursuits as much as we can this summer!
Scholarship awards typically average $200- 250/applicant, depending upon the number of applicants and amounts requested. Awards will be granted upon confirmation of enrollment and sent directly to the camp or instructor. Students may also propose a music related summer project for funding. We expect to be very flexible this year after awards are announced. For example, if a student's camp plans change, we will allow pivot of their award to private lessons or project if/when those alternate plans are confirmed.
Complete applications, including confirmations (or pending confirmations) from the camp / instructor, are essential to receive the award. Announcement of the award will be made by e-mail to recipients and posted on the mdihsmusic.org website by May 30, with awards mailed directly to the instructor/camp upon confirmation of the enrollment.
Students/families who participate in Music Booster related fundraising events will receive priority consideration in event of limited overall funds and/or abundant numbers of applications. As a reminder, current MDIHS students who have raised funds for their Music Booster Student Accounts may use those funds in addition to their scholarship to pay for summer lessons or camp.
Applications are Due May 21, 2020! We encourage students to complete their own forms (with support from family as needed). Be sure to have your camp or instructor contact information ready before you begin the form.
