There are two scholarships awarded yearly to recognize current Music & Arts Institute students who show outstanding dedication to their musical studies. Candidates are nominated by their teachers and then participate in a competition in the spring where two winners are chosen. The first place winner receives a scholarship covering 50% of tuition for the upcoming year and the second place winner receives a scholarship covering 25% of tuition for the year.
The 2018 Scholarship Competition will be on Friday, June 8. All current MAI students are eligible but need to be recommended by their teacher.
