Fall 2023: Announcement of 2024 Bill Verdier Irish Music Scholarship

Applications are being accepted from young musicians seeking financial assistance to advance their skill in and understanding of Irish traditional music. The 2024 award is to be used to help support costs, up to $1,500, related to tuition, travel, and lodging at a music school, festival, or workshop in North America or Ireland.

Applications will be accepted from legal residents of the U.S., aged 16 to 25 years old (as of March 1, 2024), who have been playing and studying an Irish traditional melody instrument for at least three years. The application period will be open until late winter or until an applicant has been selected, so applying early is recommended.

The Bill Verdier Irish Music Scholarship was launched in 2022 in memory of Bill Verdier, a pillar of the Irish traditional music scene in Nashville, TN, for almost 30 years. More details and application form are at:
