Sister Bay, Wis. (March 1, 2023) – It’s that time of year again when PMF looks forward to awarding our $3,000 GEORGE VERHEYDEN MEMORIAL COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIP, and a $100 SUMMER MUSIC STUDY GRANT to each of the five Door County Public Schools.
The George Verheyden Memorial Scholarship: This three-year, $3,000 college scholarship is awarded to a graduating senior who resides in Door County. The recipient must be an outstanding music student who demonstrates great ability as a performer, shows dedication and a sustained interest in music, and wishes to further his/her musical studies by pursuing an undergraduate major or minor in music. Monies must be utilized for educational expenses, and at the end of each academic year, beginning with the completion of the Freshman year, the recipient is expected to furnish PMF’s Scholarship Committee with a written progress report, and proof of registration for the upcoming academic year showing continuation of their major or minor in music. Application is available for download at www.musicfestival.com, and all materials must be received to email@example.com by April 28, 2023.
Summer Music Study Grants: Five $100 Summer Music Study Grants are awarded to music students in their freshmen, sophomore, or junior years of High School. One grant of $100 is available to each of the five Door County Public Schools. The mission is to help defray costs associated with summer music camps and private study. To be eligible, students must have demonstrated a sustained interest in music, and a clear commitment to further education in the field. High School music teachers are responsible for submitting final nominations, but students are strongly encouraged to nominate themselves to their music teachers for consideration. You may award $100 to one student, $50 to two, or $25 to four students. If you don’t have students to nominate, please let us know; otherwise, e-mail the student’s name(s) and what the study grant will be used for (i.e., name of camp or private instructor) to PMF’s Scholarship Committee. Your decision does not have to be based on need, as monies can be awarded based on talent, motivation, and desire. All nominations must be received to firstname.lastname@example.org by April 28, 2023.
