work credit & scholarships

Tuition work credit program

MYS offers a tuition work credit program to ensure that all qualified students may participate. Students, parents and guardians may earn tuition credit in exchange for completing work assignments at MYS rehearsals, concerts, and other activities as required. Participation in this program is based on financial need, work experience, and the ability to meet assigned work requirements. Download the the 2018-19 Tuition Work Credit Application.

Donations to the Carissa Hayen Memorial Scholarship Fund provide some of the financial support for our Tuition Work Credit Program.

Mary West Memorial String Scholarship

The Mary West Memorial String Scholarship is an annual award given to a deserving student. Funds for this scholarship are provided by donations made to the Mary West Memorial Fund. The funds are administered and distributed through MYS by a Selection Committee.

The $500 scholarship award may be used for private violin, viola, cello or bass instruction, music camps, or other pursuits that will give the student a continuing education in music. The scholarship will be awarded at the final concert of the MYS season. Click here for an application. Deadline to apply: March 9, 2019.
