Application for Scholarship-
The Northwest Scottish Fiddlers encourages the spread of traditional music by offsetting a portion of tuition for applicants who otherwise would not be able to afford to attend camp.
Consideration for awards is based on: 1. financial need, 2. demonstrated interest in traditional music and, 3. anticipated travel expenses. People of all ages and levels of ability are welcome to apply.
Please be aware that financial aid recipients are encouraged (though not required) to play a tune or set of tunes for the Saturday ceilidh, or other time of your choosing. You can choose to play solo or in combination with other financial aid recipients, camp members, or instructors. Alternatively, financial aid recipients may volunteer to help with various camp needs. We always appreciate help in setting up rooms, and “tearing down, cleaning up, etc. such as the social hour, sessions, ceilidh decorating/planning, or registration on Friday.
