Application Guidelines

General Need-Based Scholarships

NISOM offers need-based financial assistance in the form of scholarships to students from low and moderate income families or those with demonstrated need. Students of any age wishing to enroll in private lessons, group classes, or workshops are encouraged to apply. Students already enrolled in programming may apply for funding for future sessions. Funding is typically not awarded for summer lessons. NISOM is now accepting applications for 2016-2017 school year.

To Apply: New students may submit a 2016-17 Scholarship Application to NISOM. Hard copies are available at the NISOM office. Please submit your application before you plan to register. Applications for group classes and workshops will be accepted throughout the year from any student.

The deadline has passed for current/former students scholarship applications for the 2016-17 school year. Students must apply each school year they wish to be considered for funding, and all returning private students must apply by the primary deadline. Current student who have a change in financial position with a new need for scholarship assistance should contact us. 

Funding is provided by Leisure Services of Dubuque, NISOM, and private donors. Those receiving Leisure Services funds must live within Dubuque city limits and will need to complete an income verification report to accept their scholarship award.

All scholarship students are expected to demonstrate commitment to NISOM and their music education via attendance and participation.

 

Flint-Lindsay Scholarship Fund

The Flint-Lindsay Scholarship Fund was established in 2013 to provide tuition funding to NISOM students. Funding is provided by James & Susan Lindsay via an endowed scholarship fund.

For the 2016-2017 school year, one student will be awarded a full scholarship for weekly 30-minute private lessons. Applicants should intend to study at NISOM for the entire 2016-2017 school year.

The ideal recipient is a student who has been nominated by a NISOM music teacher as an outstanding musician who displays a passion for musical performance, has been in the NISOM music program for at least one year, and is in need of financial assistance to continue his or her music education. The Flint-Lindsay Scholarship is open to NISOM students of any age and is eligible for all lesson types. Students with both financial need and outstanding musicianship are strongly encouraged to apply. Those with either financial need or outstanding musicianship will also be considered. Musicianship will be weighed slightly heavier than financial need in selecting the recipient. Students must have studied at NISOM between July 1, 2015 and May 31, 2016. Preference will be given to students who will have been enrolled at NISOM for at least one school year as of August 2016.

The application deadline for the 2016-2017 school year has passed. No additional applications will be accepted.

Students who wish to be considered for a need-based scholarship in the event that they are not awarded the Flint-Lindsay scholarship or families seeking need-based scholarships for additional lessons may indicate this in their Flint-Lindsay Scholarship application form. A separate application for need-based scholarship consideration for the 2016-2017 school year is not necessary.

All scholarship students are expected to demonstrate commitment to NISOM and their music education via attendance and participation.
