Workshop Scholarships

Through the generous support of donors, the American Recorder Society awards scholarships for weekend and week-long recorder workshops, most of which occur in the summer. A weekend workshop is any workshop lasting four days or less. Any ARS member needing financial assistance to attend a workshop, whether in person or virtual, may apply. If you would like to apply but aren't a member, feel free to utilize our half-price special and pay only $25 for the first year. Join Now!

The ARS maintains its long tradition of helping people dedicated to the recorder and its music.

Our financial support gives individuals interested in learning and developing recorder skills the opportunity to attend workshops and to interact with other recorder players.

Week-long workshops: the deadline has been extended from March 31 to August 31. Ideally, applicants should apply two months before funding is needed if possible. Applications must be postmarked or received electronically by August 31. May be used for online/virtual workshops at an amount necessary for the online format, not to exceed $500.

New for 2021: a scholarship to the Virtual Oberlin Baroque Performance Institute is available!  Click here for details.

Weekend workshops: Applications are accepted at any time. Effort should be made to apply at least two months before funding is needed.
