Scholarships are awarded for the academic year (early-September to mid-May). Students enrolled part-time or full-time in a Technical School, Community College, or four-year University are eligible. The monetary worth of each award is $85 a week ($35/rehearsal, $50/service). Special events occur four to five times per year and include the Christmas Program, the Christmas Eve Candlelight Service, one scheduled concert, and Holy Week activities. Scholarship students are required to participate in at least three of these events during the season. Participation in all special events is highly encouraged. Occasionally the choir is asked to offer gifts of music at church members’ weddings or memorial services. All such events are compensated and announced as far in advance as possible; it is hoped that scholars will be able to participate. Scholarship recipients are paid on a monthly basis from September-May.
