Scholarship Description

The CFJS Scholarship competition is for amateur jazz musicians who are high school seniors or students in the first 3 years of college. Applicants must be residents of, or attend/plan to attend a college in Central Florida: Orange, Seminole, Osceola, Brevard, Lake or Volusia counties. There is no age restriction. The number of recipients and dollar amounts will vary.

An initial screening of all applicants will require an audition audio or video containing 1 or 2 brief improvised choruses of 2 selections of different tempos (make clips short so they can be sent by e-mail). Send .mpg or .mp3 as attachments in an e-mail and be sure to include the student’s name. That is the preferred method, a CD or DVD can be sent in. Be sure that the student’s name is on the recording.

In addition to the musical recording, a letter of recommendation from an individual familiar with the applicant’s musicianship, character and commitment to jazz study must be submitted. Each of the students selected for final judging will be sent further instructions. Scholarship Search
