WHAT WE DO
Each year the Williamson Foundation for Music awards a certain number of grants to young musicians, chosen directly or indirectly by the board of directors, for study at the program of the grantee’s choice. This program could be a music summer school or a well-established year-round music program; it could include festivals, academies, master-classes, or other educational musical gatherings. Once the grantees make their own applications and arrangements for attendance, the WFM will then send funds directly to the corresponding institutions. At the end of the program, the students will be asked to give an account of their experience, for the sake of future grantees. In addition, the institution must provide a document stating that the funds were used as intended (to comply with federal tax regulations). The Foundation also supports certain established music schools by offering scholarships to musicians chosen by the school. A plan to help students buy their own musical instruments is under consideration.
We do not accept applications at this time.
