NVMS American Indian Music Scholarship offers two $500 scholarships to be used for any need. The NVMS Scholarship provides financial assistance to American Indian high school and college students pursuing professional degrees in music. Applicants must be a US citizen, national, or permanent legal resident of Montana who is of American Indian ethnicity, and be either a high school senior or a college student currently enrolled full-time at an accredited U.S. vocational, junior college, or four-year college/university.
As Montana’s only nonprofit community music school, North Valley Music School founded this scholarship to encourage the pursuit of music education, provide philanthropic funding for American Indians and indigenous communities, and enable broader public awareness of the diverse musical contributions of Montana’s American Indians to the culture of our state and region. We seek to honor and award such individuals as role models of citizenship, creativity, and entrepreneurship in the arts.
