Flint-Lindsay Scholarship – for Continuing Students

The Flint-Lindsay Scholarship Fund was established in 2013 to provide tuition funding to students at Northeast Iowa School of Music. Funding is provided by James & Susan Lindsay through an endowed scholarship fund.

For the 2022-2023 school year, one student will be awarded a full scholarship for weekly 30-minute private lessons. Applicants should intend to study at our school for the entire 2022-2023 school year.

The ideal recipient is a student who has been nominated by one of our faculty members as an outstanding musician who displays a passion for musical performance, has been taking lessons with us for at least one year, and needs financial assistance to continue his/her music education. The Flint-Lindsay Scholarship is open to Northeast Iowa School of Music students of any age and is eligible for all lesson types. Students with both financial need and outstanding musicianship are strongly encouraged to apply. Musicianship will be weighed slightly heavier than financial need in selecting the recipient. Students must have studied at Northeast Iowa School of Music between July 1, 2021, and May 31, 2022.

Preference will be given to students who will have been enrolled at our school for at least one school year as of August 2022.
