SMF Scholarship Information

Each year, Coda Mountain Academy Summer Music Festival provides young musicians with need based financial assistance. While resources are limited, in 2016, 71% of our students received some level of scholarship assistance. Scholarship to attend Coda Mountain Academy Summer Music Festival is available, but students will only be considered for assistance after the application and audition process is completed by the applicant. Once the student’s camp application is complete, a financial aid form will be released. 

Students who are interested in applying for scholarship must submit a completed financial aid application. Along with the financial aid application, students must provide a copy of the most recent Federal Tax Form 1040 of the applicant's parent or of the applicant, if independent. Information provided on these forms will be kept confidential and will be destroyed once the financial assistance process has been completed. PLEASE NOTE: Incomplete Financial Aid applications will not be processed.

All students are encouraged to apply to the Summer Music Festival, regardless of personal or family financial need. Coda also recommends that students seek other possible sources of funding in their own communities as well. Suggested sources of summer study scholarships include: local youth orchestras and community music programs, area foundations which support the arts, and civic organizations which fund educational and student leadership programs.

To apply for financial aid, follow these instructions:

  1. Begin filling out the Summer Music Festival application. Near the end of the application, you will see a question asking whether you would like to be considered for financial aid. Select “yes”!
  2. Once your Summer Music Festival application has been submitted, you will receive an email with a Financial Aid application link.
  3. Follow this link and complete your application. Be sure that your Financial Aid application is submitted by May 15, 2017.

NOTE: Applications for financial assistance are reviewed each year, for that year only. Returning students requesting financial assistance must submit a new Application for Financial Assistance and the Tax Form 1040 each year they apply.

Select the option "Interested in Financial Aid?" towards the end of the General Student Application
