Jazz Scholarship Program

2018 Scholarship Winners Corey Jones & Nathan Manierre
The Space Coast Jazz Society awards 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.
On May 19, 2019, we will be awarding two $1,000.00 scholarships. Application deadline is April 15, 2019.
Applicants must be interested in furthering their studies in jazz music, registered for continued education, 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.
