Scholarship Overview

Are you a musician between the ages 8 and 18? If so, consider applying for the Jack Kent Cooke Young Artist Award! The scholarship is open to pre-collegiate music students who need financial help to offset the costs of studying classical music at a high level in the United States.

From the Top is the largest national platform for classically trained musicians in the U.S. They award the scholarship to students with financial need to support them through the expensive cost of studying classical music. Each year, 20 lucky students are chosen to earn up to $10,000 to cover instrument purchases, summer camp tuition, college audition travel expenses, private lessons, and other music-related needs.
