Pratt Music Foundation Scholarships Available


BLOOMINGTON – Every year, the Pratt Music Foundation searches out talented youth with financial need as candidates for the Pratt Music Foundation Scholarships.

The Foundation grants scholarships to the Illinois Wesleyan University Music Preparatory Program. Instruction is available in piano or strings (violin, viola, cello, or bass). Each scholarship covers one school year of instruction as well as summer lessons (2014).

Scholarships are awarded based on financial need, motivation, and talent. While most scholarships are awarded to students who have already had some instruction, students with no previous musical instruction may also apply.

Any student in grades K – 12 and capable of regularly attending instruction will be considered. (As a practical matter, most students are drawn from the Bloomington-Normal area.)

Applications are due on or before June 1. 

To receive an application or for more information, or for answers to specific questions, contact Marc Miller: or call 827-5534.
