AMFMAnnapolis Musicians Fund for Musicians, Inc. (AMFM), a nonprofit organization that supports professional Annapolis-area musicians, is accepting applications for its second annual Tim King Music Performance Scholarship. The $5,000 scholarship will be awarded to a current high school senior who intends to pursue a bachelor’s degree in either vocal or instrumental music performance.

Candidates must meet the following basic criteria:

  • Be a current high school student residing in Anne Arundel County, scheduled to graduate in May/June 2019
  • Be a musician active in high school chorus, band, orchestra, jazz band, or other school-sponsored performance group
  • Have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0
  • Intend to pursue a bachelor’s degree in music performance

Candidates will be evaluated using a points-based system that awards points for active membership in a school band, orchestra, choir, chorus, or other school-sponsored musical performance group; volunteer music participation; participation in special school performances; selection to All County/All State/Regional performance groups; and participation in private music lessons. Candidates will also be required to submit either a three-minute narrative video or a 500-750 word written essay to support their application. The narrative video or essay should address the question, “What role has music played in my life, and how will it shape and influence my future?” Candidates are encouraged to include one letter of recommendation from a music teacher, music coach, or music mentor. An optional performance video will also be accepted.

The scholarship application deadline has been extended through April 22, 2019, and the scholarship recipient will be chosen on or about May 22, 2019. To apply, and for details, go to www.am-fm.org/music-performance-scholarship/.

Tim King was one of Annapolis’ beloved musicians and entertainers as well as a wonderful and gifted guitar teacher. The Tim King Music Performance Scholarship honors his legacy by providing support to future musicians—something that was near and dear to Tim’s heart.

AMFM was created to provide financial relief to professional Annapolis musicians who cannot work due to sickness, injury, or any other circumstance leaving them unable to perform. It also fosters the next generation of musicians in the Annapolis area through its scholarship and award programs. AMFM raises funds through donations and through music events that showcase local professional talent, including its “In the Vane Of…” music series. For more information, visit www.am-fm.org.
