Sarasota Music Club's music scholarship program has supported music education for many years. In 2016, the club formed a partnership with Artist Series Concerts of Sarasota and introduced a new, combined scholarship program - Suncoast Music Scholarships.
Suncoast Music Scholarships help young musicians meet expenses related to music education. The competition is open to 10th , 11th and 12th grade students residing in Sarasota or Manatee County. The 2019 Suncoast Music Scholarship auditions will determine the awarding of $20,000 in scholarship funds.
Applications for the 2019 competition will be due no later than 5 p.m. on March 13, 2019. (Updated application form will be posted in January.)
Auditions will be held on April 13, 2019.
