The Kennedy Society awards annual scholarships to students of Celtic arts such as dance, pipes, drums, harp, fiddle, and language arts.
To receive a Kennedy Society scholarship, the student must meet these criteria:
- Be sponsored by a Kennedy Society member
Note: The student himself or herself does not have to belong to the KSNA. However, the student must be sponsored by a KSNA member. Otherwise, the application will be considered invalid.
- Plan to attend a certified workshop, class, or camp of instruction
- Provide documentation of certification of the workshop, class, camp, or instructor
A scholarship award covers the cost of workshop, class, or camp registration.
To apply, print and fill out the scholarship application. The application is in Portable Document Format (PDF), which requires a viewer such as the well-known Adobe Reader or the smaller and faster Foxit Reader to view. Both of these viewers are FREE.
Send the application to:
6415 Barberry Hill Drive
Gainesville, GA 30506
A resumé and letter of recommendation from the student’s teacher are required.
The deadline for scholarship applications is March 31, 2017
