Brevard County Students Honored With $1,500 Scholarships By Space Coast Jazz Society
By Space Coast Daily // March 3, 2016
Application due by April 15
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – The Space Coast Jazz Society is dedicated to the preservation and promotion of jazz.
One of the ways they do that is through their education outreach program which focuses on students from elementary grades through college.
The Space Coast Jazz Society offers scholarships to Brevard County high school seniors and Brevard County residents in their first three years of college.
They also provide free weekly jazz workshops for grades 4-12, and encourage students of all ages to attend the monthly live jazz concerts free of charge.
This year, two scholarships in the amount of $1,500 will be awarded, plus a $500 award to the jazz program of the recipient’s school.
This is a new policy designed to encourage maximum participation from the schools and to give back to the schools and community to help them preserve and promote the Art of Jazz as well.
Applicants must be interested in furthering their studies in jazz music, but do not need to major in music.
Applications and supporting materials are due by April 15 and the scholarships will be awarded the third Sunday in May during the monthly SCJS concert, set for 2 p.m. at the Cocoa Beach Country Club. Winners will perform with a trio provided by the SCJS.
