The scholarship is to be $1000 per year.

Eligible applicants include high school seniors in an ATSSB school who plan to pursue a bachelor’s degree in music and a teaching certificate with the intention of becoming a band director in a public or private school.

The ATSSB Board of Directors or its designee is empowered to decide who is awarded the scholarship each year.

All monies donated to the fund are under the direct supervision and control of the ATSSB State Board of Directors.

Should the scholarship fund exceed its original goal of presenting a $1000 scholarship per year, ATSSB may adjust or increase the amount awarded as needed.  Should market conditions cause the fund to fall below the award amount, ATSSB can adjust or decrease the amount awarded as needed. At the discretion of the committee, no award may be presented if no candidate meets the committee’s approval.
