Orfeo Music Festival has a limited number of merit scholarships available. To be considered, you must include your written request as part of the application package. Scholarship requests are not accepted after your application is submitted. Priority is given to those showing highest merit as demonstrated in the audition recording. Financial need is used only as a secondary consideration. We are unable to provide any advance information on financial aid amount. The written scholarship request must include
1) the first page of the most recent tax return,
2) a letter stating your musical achievements,
3) the amount of scholarship you are requesting and a statement of the financial circumstances on which your request is based. Please be aware that large scholarship requests without accompanying merit may jeopardize your acceptance. Scholarship recipients are assigned additional administrative/office duties during the festival. Scholarship checks are to be requested after successful completion of duties following the festival and mailed to student’s address provided.
Please explore your local community, including arts, religious or civic organizations, schools and private donors for alternate sources of financial aid. Private donors will receive a tax deduction receipt from the festival since Orfeo Music Festival, a non-profit organization, is tax-exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code .

"This has been a wonderful experience for me. It feels possible to fit a year’s worth of learning, performing, and listening into only couple weeks (impossible at home, where other responsibilities get in the way) and the exchange of ideas, inspiration and new friendships are as good as the music! Thank you."
