The Men of Music Scholarship is an endowed scholarship within the “Art from the Heart” scholarships administered by the Midland Center for the Arts.
Mission and Purpose
The mission of the MoM scholarship is to provide funding for vocal music instruction and vocal music camps to males entering 7th through 12th grade. In keeping with the membership of the MoM choral group, students in Midland, Bay, and Saginaw Counties are eligible for this scholarship. The selection of recipient students will be based on academics, school and community involvement, and vocal music performance experience.
A scholarship committee established by the MCFTA with representatives from MCFTA and the Men of Music will recommend one or more students to receive the award each year. The award is an annual reward that does not automatically renew. Applicants may reapply each year for the award.
Award checks will be issued to the music camp or vocal instructor designated by the applicant. If the scholarship winner has already paid for this activity, a check will be issued to the applicant upon submission of proof of payment. Award winners may be asked to take part in a Men of Music performance. Such participation is encouraged but not required.
We will award at least one $250.00 scholarship. It is possible that more than one scholarship would be awarded.
