We're working on a new website. Thanks for your patience.



Scholarships will be awarded for tuition for the 2017-2018 school year.  Previous recipients are eligible to reapply for the scholarship for up to three additional years or until a Bachelor's Degree is earned, whichever occurs first.  The purpose of this Fund is to award annual post-secondary scholarships for qualified students desiring to matriculate and pursue careers in music education, performance, or music therapy. 

These scholarships are made possible by the generous gift of Marion Groth on behalf of her husband, Chester. To be eligible to receive this scholarship, an applicant must:

  • Be a graduating high school senior from a Minnesota high school
  • Be entering college as a freshman
