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 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.
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: At least two months before funding is needed. For summer workshops, applications must be postmarked or received electronically by March 31
Weekend workshops: Applications are accepted at any time. Effort should be made to apply at least two months before funding is needed.
