Instrumental Student Scholarships
The West Michigan Concert Winds and the Community Foundation for Muskegon County are proud to offer a variety of scholarships to middle and high school students. Instrumental players attending Muskegon County schools in grades 6-8 and grade 12 are eligible.
High School seniors planning to study music at the college/university level are eligible for one of the several grants which may be distributed on a one-time or multi-year basis. Middle school scholarships are subsidies for those wishing to attend Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp in Twin Lake, Michigan. Scholarship amounts vary from year to year.
Appointments for auditions are generally made in December and heard in January of each year. Middle school students should prepare a short piece of music to show their range and ability.
