Betty Banghart Scholarships
The Betty Banghart Scholarship Fund was established to support the development of musical talent in young people through membership in either the Deer Creek Chorale (DCC) or the Deer Creek youth Choir (DCYC). Scholarships are available to youth that are formally enrolled as students in public, private, or home education. Post high school applicants may be enrolled either full or part-time in some formal post high school education program, e.g. college, vocational school, apprenticeship, etc. Those applying for a DCYC scholarship need only meet the age/grade requirements for DCYC membership. DCC applicants must be at least 15, but not more than 22 years of age on the date of the first rehearsal. Applicants must have an endorsement from a music teacher/choir director that can credibly describe their musicianship and capacity for participation in the chorale.
Recipients of a Betty Banghart Scholarship will be expected to participate fully as a member of their choir for the full season; meeting or surpassing the Deer Creek standards for attendance, participation, and performance. It is also expected that Betty Banghart Scholars will be exemplary ambassadors of the Deer Creek Chorale and Youth Choir by sharing and promoting our vision and mission with family, friends, and others. Each choir has its own additional expectations for recipients.
Carefully review the Information Letter for your choir at the appropriate link below. Consider if you meet the requirements as described and are willing to accept the responsibility of being a Betty Banghart Scholar. Further instructions regarding the application process are in your choir’s Information Letter.
Applications will be reviewed by the Scholarship Committee and announcements of the recipients will be made prior to the first rehearsal of the season in September. Check our Calendar for the exact date.
