Scholarships and Grants
Each year we give out scholarships and grants to students, chapters, educators and professionals. In achieving our mission we award funding of grants and scholarships to promote the recorder and to provide resources and opportunities to our diverse recorder community.
Funding for Scholarships and grants comes from the generous support of donors.
