Spreading Love & Music
2020 marks the fourth year of
Grant A Guitar Scholarships
The Grant A Guitar Scholarship is awarded each year to students in order to foster music appreciation and fluency – and, ultimately, to amplify the power that music has to improve our daily lives.
Is music a peacemaker in your life?
Tell us about it in an original essay and you may be eligible to win a guitar and lessons – even if you have never played a note or plucked a string!
The 2020 Grant A Guitar Scholarship is NOT a skills-based contest.
Submit an essay in the month of April on how music serves as a peacemaker in your life and you may be this year’s recipient of a Grant A Guitar scholarship.
(At least) one high school student will receive a guitar and lessons worth $1,000, and
One middle school student will receive a guitar and lessons worth $500
Donating Instruments to Friends with Friends
AND, as we have each year,
we are EXPANDING our reach!
New in 2020: One student member of Chagrin Falls Park Community Center will receive a guitar and lessons worth $500.
How can you submit an essay?
Submit an original essay (no longer than 500 words) on this year’s theme: How does music act as a peacemaker in your life?
