Middle School Music Scholarship

The Women’s Symphony League of Tyler is honored to announce the Middle School Music Scholarship. The $500.00 scholarship is awarded annually by the Women’s Symphony League of Tyler and the Junior Symphony League of Tyler.

The Middle School Music Scholarship application is limited to current 6th-8th grade students participating in a music program. The Scholarship is to provide private instrumental, keyboard or vocal lessons, a music camp whose purpose is to enhance the applicant’s musical abilities, or the acquirement of a musical instrument. The scholarship will be distributed directly to the recipient’s approved teacher on a monthly basis until the sum of $500 is depleted, to the institution providing the music camp, or to the music store to which an instrument is to be acquired. Funds must be used within one year of the date it is awarded.

The selection committee for the Middle School Music Scholarship is comprised of select members of the Women’s Symphony League of Tyler. All applicants must meet all the Rules, Guidelines, and Criteria to be considered, as the items required in the Application Packet are weighted equally and the awarding of the scholarship is based only on these components.

The Middle School Music Scholarship winner will be announced in Spring 2020.
