Scholarships are offered by Clan Johnston/e in America to assist those studying Scottish arts and academics. All branches of music, dancing, athletics and cultural studies are areas eligible for support. The Scholarship Committee will be guided by the applicant's need, objectives, commitment, demonstrated proficiency, anticipated development and goals when granting awards. Applicants younger than nineteen years of age will be given preference. Normally, awards will not be made in consecutive years.
Scholarships are intended to support special, one-time or unique activities such as participating in short workshops, traveling to competitions out of your home area or attending music camps. Therefore requests for support in routine matters such as individual lessons, purchase of clothing and equipment or travel to local events will not be considered. The deadline for receipt of applications is April 1st.
Recommendation by a current teacher, advisor or sponsor is required. No application will be considered without such a recommendation.
