We feel strongly about the value of our school, and we don't want money to be the thing that stops anyone from attending. We have been so blessed to have donors who agree with us about the value of the school, and who step up year after year to make it possible for students to attend via scholarships. If you'd like to come to the school but have a financial need that would prevent you, we encourage you to apply for one of these scholarships funded by our generous donors.
Applying is easy - just check the box indicating you'd like to apply for a need-based scholarship during registration and fill out the requested information.
Each year during our closing program, we award two memorial scholarships to current students to enable them to attend the next year's session.
The Brock Speer Scholarship is awarded to the student who has gone above and beyond the standard level of dedication to learning during the school. 2017 recipient Jacob Daughtery is shown receiving the award above right.
The Anthony Burger Scholarship is awarded each year to the piano student who shows incredible promise and has made great strides of improvement during the school. Ron Lopez, the 2017 recipient, is shown receiving the award below right.
If you know a young person with musical talent and potential, we encourage you to consider funding a sponsorship. If you don’t have a particular student in mind but still want to contribute to furthering Gospel Music, you can make a tax-deductible donation to our Scholarship Fund, which allows us to award scholarships to multiple applicants each year. All donors receive a receipt for tax purposes.
