Youth Scholarships

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 bluegrass 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.

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 deadline for applications is January 1, 2022. For more information and to secure an application form, please go to the SEMBMA website at:

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 2022 youth scholarships are now open.
