The Falmouth Chorale is seeking applicants for a $2,000 scholarship. The scholarship is offered to qualified high school graduates living in the towns of Falmouth, Bourne, Sandwich and Mashpee who are pursuing a music degree from a licensed, degree-granting institution.
The Frederick Johnson Music Award, now in its 14th year, supports the higher education goals of Upper Cape music students and honors Frederick Johnson, who directed the Falmouth Chorale for 17 years. The amount of the scholarship, made possible by an anonymous donor, has increased this year.
Last year’s scholarship recipients were Matthew Newcombe, a 2019 graduate of Falmouth High School; and Celia Krefter, a 2018 graduate of Mashpee High School who was a freshman at Columbia University.
Qualifying students may be attending or a graduate of any high school, public or private; or home-schooled, as long as they are residents of one of the Upper Cape towns. Information about the scholarship has been distributed to guidance offices at Bourne, Falmouth, Mashpee and Sandwich high schools, Falmouth Academy, Sturgis Charter Public Schools and St. John Paul II High School.
Applications are available on the chorale’s website under the “About Us” menu header and also by contacting scholarship chairperson Joan Davis at 508-759-2104. Completed applications are due by Friday, May 1.
