The Scholarship Program
A substantial scholarship program enables many students to receive financial help towards their musical studies at the Dorothy Delson Kuhn Music Institute. The Foundation for the Music Institute was established in 1978 to insure the continuity of this program. Auditions for scholarships are held in late spring and during the summer. Scholarships are awarded on the basis of musical experience, ability and financial need. Students who are entering grades 6 through 12, and who have had some previous training on their instrument, are eligible to audition for a scholarship. Younger students of exceptional ability, with some previous training and a teacher recommendation, are also eligible.
Foundation for the Dorothy Delson Kuhn Music Institute
The mission of the Foundation for the Dorothy Delson Kuhn Music Institute is to provide funds for essential music school expenses that tuition income does not cover, enabling the school to maintain high standards of community service. The primary function of the Foundation is to finance scholarships for talented and needy schoolchildren. Funds may also be allocated for special programs for music students, music faculty and music administrators and for the repairs or purchase of instruments, equipment and other instructional materials.
