Nellie Love Butcher Music Scholarship

Nellie Love Butcher Music Scholarship
Nellie Love Butcher Music Scholarship is offered every year to a male or female music student who is pursuing an education in piano or voice. Special consideration is given to students currently attending the Duke Ellington School of the Performing Arts, Washington, DC.

A GPA of 3.0 or above is required. The scholarship is for one year, but students may reapply for consideration each year, for four years, as long as they maintain the required 3.0 grade point average.

To apply, candidates may submit performance material (mp3 file) with their application. Applicants are encouraged to read carefully the instructions on submitting performance sample materials for consideration.

The scholarship is awarded through the Daughters Of The American Revolution (DAR), a membership service organization for women who are directly descended from a person involved in the United States' struggle for independence. The non-profit group was founded in 1890 and is headquartered in Washington, D.C. The organization works to promote historic preservation, education, and patriotism.

The deadline for this scholarship is usually in FEBRUARY of each year, and the award amount is usually $5,000 - $20,000.
