Band Booster Senior Scholarships
Each year, the Hays Band Boosters award scholarships to seniors who meet the requirements set out by the booster executive board. These scholarships are solely funded by the booster memberships; the more booster members who sign up, the more funds we have to award scholarships.
The scholarship applications are posted on the website so seniors and their parents know in advance what is required. Some of the requirements are: parents must be booster members, students must be in the top 25% of their class & provide a current transcript; they must write an essay about how music has enriched their life, they will need to acquire a band director evaluation and an academic teacher evaluation. They must show intention to enroll as a full time student at an accredited college, university or vocational school. They DO NOT need to be a music major. They will submit a music resume'. Band Leadership resume' community involvement and non-band school activities.
The committee will meet in ONE evening and review each application; points will be determined by a rubric. The Booster President will then issue letters to each student to award or decline the scholarship. Along with Booster President, committee chair can attend Senior Awards Ceremony in May to present scholarship recipients with award.
