The purpose of the Michael J. Murphy Scholarship Fund is to provide private instruction in music and music-related activities (including but not limited to instrumental, vocal, dance, and song-writing) for a period of one school year. The Fund will also provide the equipment and/or materials necessary to carry out the above activities. Students eligible for the award must be between 9-18 years old and currently enrolled in school. No student affiliated with any board member or employee of the foundation will be eligible for an award. Students who have been previously awarded a scholarship will be eligible to re-apply.
Applications will be screened and scholarships awarded based on the following:
A member or members of the Board will meet individually with each prospective student and their parents/guardians. The student and parent/guardians will be asked to sign a statement of commitment, assuring the committee of their willingness to follow the requirements of the scholarship. The scholarship will be effective for one entire school year. These dates will be determined by the committee in consultation with the student and their family once the award has been announced.
Regular attendance at scheduled lessons is very important and is required. It is a reflection of your commitment. Missed lessons must be rescheduled. Recurring missed lessons and/or no shows may result in termination of the award and the return of the instrument, at the discretion of the Board.
The Michael J. Murphy Music Scholarship Fund is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, and ethnic origin in administration of its scholarship awards.
The annual application process begins February 1 and closes April 30.
