Overview & Guidelines
The Grace Ho Scholarship is awarded annually and covers full tuition for the University of Oregon Summer Concert Band Camp. Applicants should be high school students with a passion for music. The recipient will be chosen based on musical performance and responses to provided questions in a video submitted via YouTube. Both the responses to the questions and musical ability will be judged equally.
The Grace Ho Scholarship covers full tuition for one high school student to attend the UO Summer Concert Band Camp. The scholarship covers ‘Plan 1’ of the summer camp’s pay options. This includes full tuition, t-shirt, locker, housing, and all meals. The student must provide their own transportation to and from the camp. In total, the scholarship is for $595.00.
