Merit Scholarships: As an incentive for our students to perform at a high level KMI offers several merit scholarship incentives: 1) Awards of $100/$50/$25 off regular tuition for high scores on the Annual PPTA Piano Evaluations; 2) Awards of ONE to TWO terms of FULL or PARTIAL FREE TUITION for FIRST, SECOND or THIRD PRIZE AWARDS OR $50 off regular tuition for HONORABLE MENTION at a regional competition.
Benefactior Funding: On occasion the school receives donations from generous individuals to be used toward tuition for students in financial need. When received, the director confers with the donor regarding requirements and selection of the deserving individual. These donations are sporatic and rare, and are always awarded to students who have already shown commitment toward music education (regular attendence of lessons, preparation at home, progress, and other achievements.)
Outside Funding: There are some scholarships available for music students, some of which are based on merit (winning a competition) and some are based on financial need. Go to this web page to learn about them and to determine if you qualify. If you become aware of other financial assistance programs, please make us aware of them too so that we may expand this resource list.
