2019 Jazz Scholarship Winners Zachary Beaver & Jared Dransfield.

Jazz Scholarship Program

Our mission is to preserve and promote live jazz and one of the ways we can achieve that is by awarding Jazz Scholarships to graduating Brevard County high school seniors. The number of scholarships and the availability of scholarships depends on the amount of money raised for the scholarship fund.
Application deadline – April 15, 2019.
Applicants must be interested in furthering their studies in jazz music, but do not need to major in music.  The winners will be given a certificate of award and the scholarship money will be PAID DIRECTLY to the school where they will be attending.
