The Friends of DCI Scholarship Foundation is seeking qualified applicants who will be members of drum corps participating in the 2007 Summer Music Games Tour for the first annual Friends of DCI Scholarship. Two awards will be presented — one in the amount of $2,250 and another for $1,000. Students must also be enrolled in a college or university for the fall semester of 2007 or must be a high school senior who has been accepted to a college or university for the fall of 2007.
The deadline to submit the full application package is quickly approaching on May 15. Applications received after that date or applications that are incomplete will not be considered. Applicants will be required to submit proof of academic enrollment, a letter of recommendation and respond to two essay questions for consideration. Applications will be presented to a panel of the Friends of DCI Scholarship Foundation contributors who will choose its first two beneficiaries. Consistent with the Friends of DCI motto—"Partners in the Pursuit of Excellence"—scholarships are awarded on the basis of a student's commitment to excellence in his/her academic and drum corps pursuits, as noted in the scholarship application. Scholarship recipients will be recognized at the 2007 DCI World Championships in Pasadena, Calif.
