Alasdair Fraser's Sierra Fiddle Camp and Valley of the Moon Scottish Fiddling School Financial Aid Application 2017
The Financial Aid Programs at Alasdair Fraser’s Sierra Fiddle Camp and Valley of the Moon (VOM) Scottish Fiddling School were established to provide financial aid grants for the purpose of encouraging the spread of traditional music, and are open to all attendees. The Sierra program (supported by the Sierra Village Fund), and the VOM program (supported by the Peter Connelly Scholarship Fund) are wholly financed by private donations and are part of the Scottish Fiddlers of California, a 501(c)3 entity. Grants are awarded on the basis of financial need and demonstrated interest in traditional music. Travel expenses are taken into account. You need not be an accomplished musician to apply; awards are made to both children and adult campers. Only persons accepted to camp will be considered for financial aid.

Please be aware that scholarship 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 scholarship students, camp members, or instructors. In addition, scholarship 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. The committee from the camp to which you apply always acknowledges receipt of your application. If you have not heard back from us within a week of submission, please contact us at:
