2017 Hilton Head Jazz Camp / Junior Jazz Foundation Scholarship Application
The Hilton Head Jazz Camp, founded in 2011, is a summer weeklong day camp taking place this summer July 10-15, 2017 immersing students in jazz through large ensembles, combos, improv, master classes, performances, elective courses, and fun activities, including a private lunch concert / lecture at a real jazz club, The Jazz Corner. The camp is held at Hilton Head Christian Academy daily from 9am-4pm for all aspiring jazz students age 14-20. All jazz instrumental students from private, public, or homeschool programs are eligible to attend the camp.

Our sponsor, the Junior Jazz Foundation is offering scholarship awards for the Hilton Head Jazz Camp for students that meet the criteria below. Possible scholarship awards may vary in amount based on demand, availability and the number of applicants. Both local and out-of-town students may apply for scholarship awards. Scholarship awards are applied towards tuition, not lodging. Please note that automatic discounts of $50 each are already given to students who have been accepted into a region or all-state band, have attended the jazz camp before, or are registering with their sibling. Please indicate whether this scholarship application is need or merit-based.

Any student applying for a merit-based scholarship should include a link of your best playing and/or include a music director’s recommendation. Students must also fill out an online or paper camp registration form prior to being considered for a scholarship. Forms and online registration are available @ hhjazzcamp.com

In addition to the general need-based and merit-based scholarship awards, we have special scholarship awards available for vocal jazz and jazz strings students. These scholarship programs, limited to a highly select group of students, will have the opportunity to work with our artist-in-residence Nicki Parrott or our new jazz strings instructor Ricardo Ochoa, in special sessions, separate from the large ensemble rehearsals.
