Youth Scholarship/Mentor Grants

If you have a 7 – 12 grader they are eligible for a grant to put towards lessons. Every year Prairie Lakes Regional Arts Council awards grants for up to $300/student. It is worth a try. They are very supportive of our program and our students and we are deeply grateful for their continued encouragement.  Here is information you need:

  • September 1 – deadline for past grant recipients to submit final reports
  • October 1 – deadline for new grants to be submitted to PLRAC

Please check their website at for all the forms and information regarding their student grants. Your teacher will be more than willing to help fill out your information and give you suggestions.


We are once again able to offer scholarships for our families that participate in summer music camps. We are doing it slightly different this year so that more can benefit from our scholarship opportunity.

Here are the specifics:

  • All students of NUSSM are eligible
  • Amount will be a percentage determined after we know how many are requesting funds
  • You can qualify for only ONE scholarship — example: if you are doing both Pops Camp and the WI Suzuki Institute you need to pick one

Pleas contact the office if you are interested in a scholarship and let us know what the funds would be used for. We will be in contact with you regarding the amounts available.

SAM Student Scholarship Deadline

I just wanted to share with all of you that the statewide association is offering student scholarships for institutes this coming summer.  If you are interested in applying, I have the forms and would be happy to make copies for you or I think you can get the applications on-line at as well (I’m not 100% sure about that one, but it would be worth checking it out).

The applications must be postmarked before April 6, 2012.

If you need a recommendation from Judy or Paula, please let us know ASAP.
