The 2020 Scholarship Fund 

Help us reach our $25,000  Scholarship Goal for 2020.

Help us keep jazz alive for generations to come! 

The goal of the scholarship program of the Jazz Club of Sarasota is to further an understanding of jazz and/or to develop performance skills in the field of jazz. Residents of Southwest Florida, who are high school seniors or current college students, will be considered for one of our merit scholarships. College students may reapply for a scholarship each year of undergraduate study. Applications may be submitted electronically or via mail and must include audition performances, statement of goals, and recommendations.
