2020 Music Camp North Scholarships


There’s a link to the scholarship application form at the bottom of this page. But before you go there, please read the important information on this page. Thank you!

Thanks to the generosity of our friends, supplemented by our own resources, Music Camps North Inc. has scholarship funds available for Mandolin Camp North on the weekend of April 17-19, 2020, and for Banjo Camp North on the weekend of May 15-17, 2020. Whether the scholarships are full or partial depends partly on additional donations we may receive.

To be eligible for a scholarship, you must attest that it would be a financial hardship to attend the Camp without the support of scholarship funds. The scholarship recipients will be chosen by the Board of Directors based on an essay and sound recording that you submit (details are provided on the application form.

Although we ask you to submit a video of yourself playing an instrument, we don’t grant scholarships based on playing ability — you’re coming to camp to foster that. Rather, we grant them based on your financial need and how you will “pay it forward” by taking what you gain from camp and using it to further our mission. That’s why we ask that you to make clear in your application essay how a scholarship to camp would help us further our mission.

People who are already registered for Banjo Camp North or Mandolin Camp North are eligible to apply. Relatives of members of Music Camps North’s board of directors are ineligible.

Music Camps North Inc. does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital status, disability or genetic information.

If a scholarship is awarded to a person under the age of 18 years, his or her parent or guardian must be present on the camp premises whenever said camper is on the premises. The parent or guardian will be charged the amount the camp is charged by the conference facility for the parent or guardian’s meals and lodging if applicable.

The deadline for applications is March 10, 2020.
