Scholarships

Youth Scholarship Program

Apply to our Youth Scholarship Program. If you are 25 or under and would like to apply for a youth scholarship, email us with a few paragraphs describing your musical experience and ambitions. It will also help to attach a recommendation from one or more instructors or established musicians who know you. The number of grants we are able to offer in any given year naturally depends on the level of contributions received. It is likely that most grants offered will take the form of partial scholarships.

SBC Work Study Program

We offer a few work-scholarships each year. We may be able to continue this program during our digital incarnation (applicants need to be computer and social media savvy). Stay tuned.  If you are interested, please contact us and describe your situation. We reserve the right to discontinue this offer once we figure we have enough people signed up.

Donate to our Youth Scholarship Program

Youngsters often get a tremendous kick-start by being exposed to great players and to the exciting atmosphere of a banjo camp, but they often have trouble finding the resources to attend. In an effort to remedy this state of affairs — and help ensure the future of the music we love — we have established a youth scholarship fund aimed at helping to bring more folks under 25 to Camp.

If you can afford to contribute $25, $50, or even $100 to this cause, please use the Donate button below — or you can note the amount of your donation in the appropriate box on the Registration Form.

Thank you for your support!
