2019 Music Camp North Scholarships

Scholarship applications for 2019 are closed. 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 12-14, 2019, and for Banjo Camp North on the weekend of May 17-19, 2019. Whether the scholarships are full or partial depends partly on additional donations we may receive.

The camps provide a great opportunity for people to improve their skills in banjo or mandolin, instruments that are central to American acoustic string music.

To be eligible for a scholarship, applicants 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  applicants submit (details are provided on the application form — follow the link at the bottom of this page).

People who are already registered for Banjo Camp North, or Mandolin Camp North, are eligible to apply. Relatives 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.

Both camps are part of Music Camps North Inc., a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with the mission to educate, celebrate, and encourage participation in acoustic string music through workshops, classes, demonstrations and other educational opportunities, including but not limited to the operation of Camps for the study and practice of playing acoustic stringed  instruments.

The deadline for submitting an application is March 10, 2019.
