FORMER WINNERS OF SCHOLARSHIPS FROM THE
EVANSTON MUSIC CLUB OR NORTH SHORE MUSICIANS CLUB ARE NOT ELIGIBLE.
In the past, scholarship winners have presented a final concert and attended a reception given by officers of the music clubs. A tentative date for this is Tuesday, May 11, 2021. We recognize that it may not be possible to have an in-person gathering in May but, if it is, winners would be required to attend. A decision on this will be made before the application deadline of March 19, 2021.
Deadline for receipt of
applications: March 19, 2021
