There are many places which offer music scholarships today. It's time consuming filling out the neccessary paperwork but all worth it in the end. Students have to look at like work...they will get paid for their efforts if they continue to fill out the music scholarship applications eventually. Each one they fill out is closer to the one which they will be awarded.
