Student Sponsorship

Part of the Festival’s mission is to provide quality music education to advanced students from all backgrounds, regardless of their economic circumstances or geographic location. To enroll, these aspiring musicians require significant financial assistance for travel, tuition, housing, and meals.

In the past two years, we have received applications from the following countries (yellow). With your help, we can continue to reach out to talented young artists from around the world.

Student Sponsorships encourage highly qualified applicants to seek enrollment in the Festival. More than 65% of student participants receive scholarships that enable them to attend the Festival. As a Sponsor, you can support a student’s dream and make a long-lasting personal connection with a talented young musician. Sponsorship levels include:

Full Season Scholarship         $6,500
Tuition, 6-week student         $3,500
Tuition, 3-week student         $1,900
