Brad Schoener Music Fund Lesson Scholarship

The purpose of the Brad Schoener Music Fund Lesson Scholarship is to provide instrumental lessons for talented 5th through 12th grade students who might not otherwise have the opportunity for further study due to personal circumstances. The awarded student must display a passion for instrumental performance and strong commitment to practice. Scholarship aid is also determined by:

  1. Music teacher referral and agreement to mentor the student
  2. Classroom teacher and/or guidance counselor referral
  3. Demonstration of financial need


Schoener Fund Lesson Scholarship Application

Recipients are eligible to re‐apply  the following academic year as long as all funds have been used from the previous award. Recipients must make arrangements for lessons with the private instructor within 90 days of receiving the award notification or risk losing the scholarship.

Congratulations to these young Upper Darby students who were awarded $500 each to continue their musical studies privately with professional musicians!
