Arts plus scholarships.

Arts+ offers a variety of scholarships for outstanding students in our private lesson division. Scholarships are awarded based on merit and determined by external and independent professional music educators. Scholarships are awarded to young children through high school students, based on the recommendations of the adjudicators.

Audition for a Scholarship

Our scholarship auditions take place each spring for the following school year. For Arts+ music students, Merit Scholarship applications are due to the Director of Music Programs in the spring. Applications are available only from Arts+ music instructors, and completed application packets must include an instructor letter of recommendation. Please see your instructor for more details. Scholarship application deadline is Friday, February 21, 2020. Auditions for the 2020-2021 school year will take place on Saturday, March 14, 2020.
