We are currently working on scholarship opportunities for 2018, and will post here as we confirm.
SOUND ADVICE GENERAL SCHOLARSHIPS
The William (Bill) Long Memorial Scholarship
Bill Long learned to play the pipes after age 80, and played for several years as a member of the "Bagpipe Studies" class at the Conservatory of Performing Arts. When Bill died last year his family donated his pipes to the program, and they have been sold to provide scholarships to the camp. For the 2018 school, there will be two scholarships, each valued at $300.
