Scholarships for Directors

Mark Williams Memorial Scholarship Fund – DIRECTOR SCHOLARSHIP

The Mark Williams Memorial Scholarship Fund for Educators was created in honor of Mark Williams (1955-2008) to celebrate his life and work as a great educator, composer and a beloved friend. The scholarship fund benefits music educators who are interested in attending the Music for All Summer Symposium but, due to financial hardship, cannot afford to pay the tuition and fees needed to attend this annual summer music camp.

Scholarships are awarded on the basis of financial need. It is the intent of the Music for All Foundation to provide a full-tuition scholarship, plus a travel stipend up to $500, to FOUR directors interested in attending the Directors’ Academy. Only director’s at Title I schools (schools with an enrolled population of 40% or more students on free and reduced lunch) will be considered. Our hope is the scholarship program will help to ensure that the Summer Symposium is financially accessible for all participants.
