One scholarship of $600 will be awarded per year, only in the Spring, when there is an eligible student. That student needs to be nominated in a written letter of recommendation by his/her former teacher, who must be a current HMTA member; the letter is to be submitted to the scholarship committee. In addition the applicant must submit a recommendation letter from a current college professor. An application and audition video recording will be required.
