The cost for the 2014 program is $3,650. This fee includes tuition for all classes and lessons, plus lodging and meals from June 1-June 25, 2014. Students are responsible for their own transportation costs to and from the festival.
There are a limited number of scholarship awards available. These awards are based on exceptional talent, financial need, and the needs of the overall program. Students who wish to be considered for a scholarship may indicate so on their application. Scholarship awards typically do not exceed $750. Priority for scholarship awards will be given to applications submitted before February 15, 2014.
Students are highly encouraged to seek financial assistance from outside sources. Schools, music clubs and organizations, youth orchestras and bands, service clubs (e.g., Rotary, Kiwanis, etc.), businesses, and foundations may be willing to help. Be professional and creative, and start planning early. Check this website for a comprehensive list of organizations that provide scholarships and grants for musicians.
