Suncoast Music Scholarships Applications Open to Area High School Students



The fourth annual Suncoast Music Scholarships program will offer up to $20,000 in music scholarships through a competition open to Sarasota and Manatee county high school students. The scholarship program is funded through a Sarasota Music Club and Artist Series Concerts of Sarasota partnership. Four scholarship awards are available for graduating seniors to use for advanced music education. The awards are: 1st place - $5,000, 2nd place - $4,000, 3rd place - $3,000 and 4th place - $2,000. Scholarships are also available for area 10th and 11th grade students through this competition. Two awards of $2,000 are available for 11th grade students, and two $1,000 awards will be available for 10th grade students. All scholarship funds are to be used for expenses related to the study of music.

Information and applications are available through the websites of both sponsoring organizations. Applications must be received by 5pm on March 13, and the auditions will be held on April 13. The 12th grade winners will perform at the annual awards luncheon on April 27.

Winners of past scholarship awards have used the funds to purchase instruments, attend prestigious summer music programs at Interlochen and Brevard Music Center, and for advanced music education at institutions like Eastman School of Music, Juilliard and the New England Conservatory.
