Scholarship General Information

For many years, the Santa Barbara Music Club Scholarships have provided support to deserving instrumental and vocal music students from Santa Barbara County. The scholarships are made possible by the generosity of our donors who wish to provide aid and encouragement to outstanding music students from local schools and teaching studios that show promise of becoming our future soloists, orchestral musicians, opera singers, and other music professionals. Success stories from past scholarship winners testify to the importance of this support and vote of confidence in these formative stages of their careers.

Scholarship eligibility is limited to residents of Santa Barbara County. Applicants coming from outside the county to attend college in Santa Barbara County are not eligible. Applicants must currently be studying in, or have graduated from, pre-college schools within the Santa Barbara County, including home schooling.

Selected winners in the 2018 scholarship auditions will perform on the Gala Scholarship Winners Concerts, June 2 and June 9, 2018 at the First United Methodist Church in Santa Barbara.
