NJMTA will award two scholarships, each for $2,000:
- to a student who will be pursuing Music Performance as a major
- to a student who will be pursuing Music Education/Pedagogy as a major
The Performance winner will perform at the NJMTA State Conference in November, and the Music Education/Pedagogy winner will read his/her essay. If there is more than one winner in either category, then the award will be shared. An alternate may be designated in each category if the performances warrant such an award.
The judges reserve the right to withhold either or both awards if the standard of either the repertoire or the performance is below that of college entrance level for a music major.
