The main objective of Special Music School PTA
is to provide support and resources to the school for the benefit and educational growth of our children.
In light of this goal, the PTA is excited to sponsor two scholarships of $2,500 each for graduating seniors who will be attending college or conservatory this Fall.
The two scholarships are for Special Music School Seniors:
Scholarship for Community Service This scholarship will be school-community focused and will reward one student’s dedication and contributions to SMS.
Scholarship for Excellence The second scholarship will reward one student’s pursuit of excellence in academics, musicianship, or a combination of both.
** Both scholarships are to assist the recipients in attaining their educational dreams.
DEADLINE: Students are required to submit this application by Sunday, May 30, 2021. Please, note the acknowledgement required at the bottom of this form. Incomplete application packets will not be considered.
Two teacher recommendations: One recommendation should be provided from an academic teacher or advisor and one from a music teacher. As a courtesy to the teachers, we suggest that you start by asking them for recommendations. This will allow them more time to write and submit ion your behalf .
- Service, Awards and Honors:
Please, provide a list detailing service to SMS (verified by the teacher), and a list of special musical performances or awards, and/or any academic awards, honors, accomplishments. You may also add a statement to elaborate or if you feel it would help clarify items on your list. This statement is completely optional.
- Personal Statement: A short statement why you deserve the scholarship.
You should use your school email to submit this application>
