Precollege Scholarships

Created with Sketch.

Scholarship gifts make it possible for talented young students to attend Precollege at Manhattan School of Music.

At Manhattan School of Music, we strive to offer all possible opportunities to our students, regardless of their financial circumstances.

Funding for qualified students is limited, and so these generous scholarship gifts are essential to our School.

For the 2023–24 academic year, tuition for the Precollege Division is $10,815. There are two types of named scholarships in our program, which are either named for the donor, or in honor or memory of someone.

MSM Precollege program is held Saturdays throughout the school year.

Establishing A Named Annual Precollege Scholarship

Annual scholarships for Precollege students may be established with a minimum gift of $2,500 and may be designated to a specific area of study. Annual funds are awarded to students until all monies in the fund are distributed, usually in a single year.

Annual named scholarships for the 2022-23 year include:

Establishing A Named Endowed Precollege Scholarship

An endowed Precollege scholarship requires a minimum gift of $50,000. The principal is permanently invested and its earned income is awarded to a student as scholarship money. Earned income rates vary annually. Naming an endowed Precollege scholarship after a loved one is a meaningful tribute to a person who has enriched our lives. A named endowed scholarship (such as the existing ones below) also introduces Manhattan School of Music as well as the Precollege scholarship recipient to the legacy and life of the honoree.

Giving To An Existing Endowed Precollege Scholarship Fund

Precollege named endowed scholarships, established in honor of and with gratitude to the following distinguished faculty members and cherished friends, are given out every year in perpetuity. Additional funding for each of these named endowed scholarships increases the amount awarded to Precollege scholarship students each year.
