Scholarships and Named Funds

Performance Scholarships
A number of performance scholarships are awarded to current and potential students based on performance excellence. These scholarships are supported by funds donated to MacPhail specifically for this purpose. Awards range from $300-$1,200 and must be used for study at MacPhail on the designated instrument (or voice) during the following semester.

Composition Scholarship
For composers of all ages this scholarship is for composition study based on the quality of original music submitted, potential as a composer, recommendation and personal interest in music.

Need-Based Scholarships

Awarded to students with financial need, as demonstrated by review of the student or parent’s most recent Federal Income Tax forms. Awards are granted to students who demonstrate a commitment to their music studies and financial need. No audition is required. Awards vary in amount and all are applied to one full academic year (fall and spring) for individual instruction. Some scholarships specify an age range and are awarded to individual instruments.
