Alasdair Fraser's Sierra Fiddle Camp and Valley of the Moon Scottish Fiddling School Financial Aid Application 2020
The Financial Aid Programs at Alasdair Fraser’s Sierra Fiddle Camp and Valley of the Moon (VOM) Scottish Fiddling School encourage the spread of traditional music by offsetting some of the tuition for applicants who otherwise would not be able to afford to attend camp. Consideration for awards is based on financial need, demonstrated interest in traditional music and anticipated travel expenses. People of all ages and levels of ability are welcome to apply.


You may apply to Sierra camp here:
You may apply to VOM here: http: //

The Sierra program (supported by the Sierra Fiddle Village Fund), and the VOM program (supported by the Peter Connelly Scholarship Fund) are primarily financed by private donations and are part of the Scottish Fiddlers of California, a 501(c)3 entity.

Please be aware that financial aid recipients are encouraged (though not required) to play a tune or set of tunes for the assembled camp (at pre-dinner concerts and/or at ceilidhs) over the course of the week. You can choose to play solo or in combination with other financial aid recipients, camp members, or instructors. In addition, financial aid recipients may meet together periodically during the week to plan events and assist with various camp needs.

Please note that you may apply for financial aid to either camp but not both. If you have any questions about financial aid, or need help in completing the application below, please contact us:
