The Southeast Michigan Bluegrass Music Association (SMBMA) has established a fund to grant scholarship assistance to youth 13-18 years of age who are interested in furthering their abilities to play acoustic music through musical instrument or vocal lessons. Awards are to be used by the recipient toward payment for music instruction, either in person or online/video instruction. The provider will be paid directly by the Association.
SEMBMA’s mission is to work together to preserve and promote bluegrass in Southeast Michigan. Providing aid to students of bluegrass music fits well with the Association mission.
The Southeast Michigan Bluegrass Music Association was formed in July of 2014 to serve the bluegrass community in the greater southeast Michigan area, and is a 501(c)(3) and a Michigan non- profit entity.
Applications for youth scholarships are now open.
