Tara Winds Scholarship Fund

2023 Scholarship Recipients

The Tara Winds Scholarship Fund was established in 1993 to share the love of music by providing funds to further music education. Since its inception, over $137,000 has been awarded to middle and high school band students to attend summer music camps and colleges across the nation.

Scholarships are awarded to students grades 7-12 as well as graduating seniors pursuing higher education in instrumental music. Recipients are chosen through an application process. Scholarships are recognized and awarded at the Tara Winds Spring Concert.
