-Families must demonstrate financial need.

-Families must submit contact information for a school teacher that is familiar with the student’s

  interests and abilities.

-Each student will have a 10-15-minute interview including singing a song of their choice. The distribution of awards will reflect the demographics of Hyde Park.

- Students granted a scholarship must attend all sessions and participate fully in the production.

 -Students will also complete a brief written reflection on their experience after the production and may be asked to participate in a brief interview.
