SAM Performance Scholarships go to High School Seniors who are the winners of a public competition in the spring spring. Students perform two pieces of American music in a judged recital. Up to three scholarships are awarded based on the judges’ ratings: $1,000 first place; $500 second place; $200 third place. The competition is open to River Valley High School seniors and Berrien Springs Parent Partnership home school seniors who live in Harbor Country.
Currently the scholarships are funded on a year-to-year basis by an anonymous donor. There is an opportunity for someone who believes in the importance of musical education and performance to endow this scholarship, and choose its name. If you want to explore the opportunity to endow this scholarship, please phone or email SAM and we will meet with you immediately to discuss.
