Instrumental or vocal students enrolled in NECOM programs or with Music Educator Members of NECOM are eligible to apply for a scholarship or bursary. Information and application forms for a bursary and/or scholarship are sent to all NECOM teachers and Music Educator Member teachers each year to distribute to their students.
