The National Band Association is pleased to offer a limited number of need-based, partial scholarships for students selected to participate in The All-American D-Day Band. In consultation with their parent/guardian, interested students should provide a brief statement on their application regarding their unique financial situation.
The exact amount of the partial scholarship will be determined after all applicants have been considered.
