NORTHEASTERN MINNESOTA — The Friends of Brad Memorial Foundation (FOBMF) recently announced its 2019 scholarship opportunity. Since 2011, the foundation has held annual scholarship competitions for students in rural high schools in northeastern Minnesota who plan to pursue music-related studies in college.
Two $750 scholarships are available in 2019. These one-time scholarships are open to student musicians residing in rural areas of St. Louis (excluding Duluth), Itasca, Lake and Cook counties. Strong preference will be given to music majors who are planning music-related careers. Students who are pursuing unrelated majors but are actively involved in music activities (e.g., ensembles, band, choir) in college are also eligible to apply.
“It is our intent to encourage young music makers, particularly in rural areas with limited resources, to pursue their passion,” says Troy Rogers, FOBMF president. “We are pleased to be able to offer this scholarship incentive for the ninth year in a row.”
The scholarship application deadline is Monday, April 29, at 5 p.m. For more information and an application, visit www.friendsofbrad.org/scholarships.
