JSV Scholarships

Timoteus Racz Memorial Scholarship: This scholarship entitles the winner to an entire season of free tuition to the JSV. This goes to a participant who demonstrates the highest level of musicality, professionalism, and teamwork.  

(It was originally named the Martha McCourt Scholarship to honor that long-time donor, and sometimes the JSV Scholarship before being renamed to honor our Founder, Timoteus.)


Collin Heade Scholarship: This is a scholarship that awards a string player $200 for private music lessons, or to put towards the JSV participation fees the next season. (It was originally named the Lori Buerkle Scholarship after a former longtime OCP/JSV board member.)


Board of Directors Scholarship:  This scholarship originated in 2013 and awards $200 for music lessons to a deserving wind player, or it may be put towards JSV participation fees the next season.
