Ovation Music Fund Scholarship

9 months ago written by

If you can play your instrument well, opportunities abound to you as Ovation Music Fund is pleased to announce scholarship program for children under 18. The children receive weekly private and/or group music lessons at one of our approved after-school music programs. Because music erases socio-economic differences, this experience connects kids from all different backgrounds. The program facilitates scholarships for all levels of skill, based on passion and financial need. The maximum amount of financial aid granted is 100% of tuition, and the lowest amount awarded is 25%.

The Ovation Music Fund 501(c)(3), formerly known as the Rock School Scholarship Fund, works with community partners across the USA to help provide low-income children under the age of 18 with a premiere music education experience.

Eligibility:

How to Apply:

To be considered for the scholarship, the candidates must complete the on-line scholarship application form. The link is given below:

Supporting Documents:

  • A copy of your most recent 1040 tax return summary (2 pages) for proof of household income. If your financial need situation has occurred during the recent calendar year, then in addition to the 1040 Tax Return summary sheets, provide proof of current income, and a letter of explanation
  • Each student must complete the essay portion of the application in their own words. The topic is: why you want to attend a Music School and which instrument(s) you would like to learn to play.
  • A parent must also provide a written description of why they want their child to attend the music school.
  • Additionally, submit a video of your child saying a few words about why they’d love to attend music school, and what music means to them. The video can be uploaded to YouTube and you can send a link via email to Apply-at-OvationMusicFund.org. This step is not mandatory, though

Award Amount:

The amount of assistance is based upon the total household income. The award amount is based on a family’s household income, the number of dependents and regional cost of living index. The guidelines for financial assistance are as follows:

  • Annual Household Income of $35,000 or less may receive up to 100% of tuition
  • $35,000 to $45,000 may receive up to 75% of tuition
  • $45,000 to $55,000 may receive up to 50% of tuition
  • $55,000 to $65,000 may receive up to 25% of tuition
  • If your income is higher than $65,000 per year you may still qualify for a scholarship. They use an algorithm that factors in the number of dependents and regional cost of living.

Application Deadline:

The deadline is November 1, 2016, for scholarships that commence in January or February 2017.
