Southeast Michigan Bluegrass Music Association Announces 2021 Scholarships for Youth

The mission for the Southeast Michigan Bluegrass Music Association is to work together to preserve and promote bluegrass in Southeast Michigan. As a part of that endeavor, the Association has established a fund to grant scholarship assistance to qualified youth in the area to further their abilities as they learn to play bluegrass music. Awards must be used by the recipient toward payment for music instruction, either in person or online/video instruction. Payment will be made to the provider. Other efforts to assist young musicians will be announced in 2021.

Applications are now open for youth ages 13-18. The scholarship application can be downloaded on our website. The deadline for applications is January 1, 2021. The applications and references will be reviewed by the Association’s scholarship committee, and candidates selected for interviews.
