Reading Musical Foundation awards more than $200,000 annually in music scholarships to Berks County musicians. The scholarship program at RMF offers:
Merit Awards (awards by audition) – held annually each March
RMF holds professionally adjudicated auditions for students in grades 1-12 for piano, organ, strings, woodwind, brass, guitar, voice, and percussion, as well as college tuition scholarships for high school seniors planning to major in music in college.
RMF provides scholarships for students who would like to take private lessons, purchase a new instrument, or attend a summer music camp, but do not have the financial resources to do so. RMF reviews applications quarterly. Private study students may reapply for renewal awards every six months.
