Scholarship Assistance: Applicants wanted: Note that filing deadlines are July 10 (for fall semester) and January 10 (spring semester).
If you are an aspiring jazz musician or music educator from Idaho, and wish to continue your education at the college or university level, there may be scholarship funds available to assist you. To be considered, you must be from Idaho, and a declared music major at a recognized college or university, either in performance or in education.
Decisions on awards are made by the Idaho Jazz Society Officers and Board of Directors. Some of the factors involved in the awards decisions include, but are not limited to, the following:
Academics (min. 3.0 GPA)
Faculty letters of recommendation indicating your abilities
For performance majors, we not only consider musical abilities, but stage presence. This may be based on seeing you perform live, on a DVD, or on a YouTube link you provide.
If a scholarship is of interest to you, please click on the link below to download the Scholarship Application Form, complete it and mail it in for consideration by the Idaho Jazz Society Scholarship Approval Committee. Note that applications for the fall semester must be received no later than July 10 for consideration. Renewal applications for the spring semester must be received by January 10 for consideration.
The typical scholarship amount, at present, is $500 per semester. This amount is not guaranteed; it can be more or less depending on available funds, individual merit, etc.
If renewing for the 2nd semester, you do not need to fill out the application form. You do, however, still need to provide proof that you are maintaining at least a 3.0 GPA, continuing in a jazz music curriculum, and provide two letters of recommendation from faculty.
If renewing for subsequent years (beyond the 2nd semester), you must fill out the application form again.
Note that family members of the Idaho Jazz Society officers and board members are not eligible.
