Financial Aid/Scholarship

Several forms of financial aid and scholarship are available for Summer in the City camp participants. 

Young musicians with demonstrated financial need are encouraged to apply for a Summer in the City scholarship. To apply for a scholarship, download and complete this form. You may send it as an email attachment to  summerinthecitymusiccamp@sjsu.edu or mail it to us. Please be sure to complete the entire form; we are unable to consider incomplete applications. 

Students who were members of their district, county, or state honor band or choir are encouraged to apply for a small scholarship. You may receive a scholarship letter identifying the amount of the scholarship. To accept the scholarship, you will need to provide documentation that you participated in the honor ensemble (a copy of the program or a letter from your teacher). Honor band and choir scholarships average $50 per ensemble in which the student participated. Please note that orchestra participation does not qualify students for this award.

We also suggest contacting your school booster programs, local businesses, family, and friends for additional funding opportunities.
