Since its inception, Great Waters Scholarship Program has contributed financial assistance to music students in the Lakes Region, helping them on the journey to connect their gifts with the needs of the music world. 

Great Water Scholarship applications are accepted beginning in January each year from New Hampshire Lakes Region residents.  High school, college or graduate students with an interest in pursuing a career in some facet of music education or performance qualify to apply for financial assistance.  Financial assistance scholarship recipients are announced in May,  and honored at one of the Great Waters concerts.

The scholarship program is funded in part through the generosity of donors, including the Nancy P. Marriott Foundation.
