PMA Music Scholarships

Supporting music in the Norwood Public Schools includes supporting students interested in continuing their education.  The PMA, with the support of sponsors, contributions, and a lot of fund raising is proud to support these students as they move beyond high school.

All graduating seniors who are planning to continue their education at an accredited school, college, or university, and who have contributed to the Norwood Public Schools Music program are eligible to apply for a Norwood Parents Music Association Scholarship award.

The application must be completed and returned, along with the transcript of the applicant’s high school record to the Fine Arts office on or before Monda, May 15.  Please be sure to include all your activities and awards, and make sure that all information is legible.

Payment of the scholarship award is contingent upon the successful completion of the first semester of the recipient’s continued education. An official copy of the recipient’s college transcript should be sent to the Fine Arts office.  Payment will be sent to the recipient upon review of the college transcript.

If you have any questions, please see Mrs. Moen in the Fine Arts office.
