The Friends of Brad Memorial Foundation (FOBMF) is pleased to announce its 2019 scholarship opportunity. Since 2011, the foundation has held annual scholarship competitions for students in rural high schools in northeastern Minnesota who plan to pursue music-related studies in college.
Two $750 scholarships are available in 2019. These one-time scholarships are open to student musicians residing in rural areas of St. Louis (excluding Duluth), Itasca, Lake, and Cook counties. Strong preference will be given to music majors who are planning music-related careers. Students pursuing unrelated majors that are actively involved in music activities (e.g., ensembles, band, choir, etc.) in college are also eligible to apply.
â€œIt is our intent to encourage young music makers, particularly in rural areas with limited resources, to pursue their passion. We are pleased to be able to offer this scholarship incentive for the ninth year in a row,â€ says Troy Rogers, FOBMF president.
The scholarship application deadline is Monday, April 29, 2019 at 5pm (CST). More information and an application are available online: www.friendsofbrad.org/scholarships.
