We are proud to announce the new Haven Walker Music Scholarship Fund that will assist Flagstaff area high school students with the opportunity to further their musical journeys. This year five $1000 awards will be given to help dedicated musicians with their lessons and perhaps the rental or purchase of instruments. This generous scholarship is available for Flagstaff students who are experiencing financial hardships. Applicants will be judged on musical talent and a proven commitment to music. The scholarship fund is run by the Flagstaff Music Festival, a nonprofit 501c3 organization. We are excited to accept applications between Jan. 15th and Jan. 26th, 2022, with scholarships being awarded in Spring 2022.
While waiting for the application to open, you can begin preparing by having ready:
1. A link to a video of you performing two songs you have been inspired by (Could be originals). Each song should be at least 3 minutes long. Both songs should be included in a single shot with no edits.
2. A personal statement. Tell us about your musical journey.
Why do you love music?
What inspires you?
What are your musical aspirations?
The statement should be at least 500 words.
3. Two letters of reference. At least one should speak directly to your musical talent and committment.
The Haven Walker Music Scholarship was founded by Bob and Pina Miller to honor their son Haven Walker. Haven was an amazing musician, son, father and friend to all. He was a staple for 20 years in the Flagstaff music scene, playing Guitar, Sarod and crossing many music genres. His untimely passing has us mourning still, but his legacy will continue through this new scholarship fund. We encourage musicians of all ethnicities, beliefs, and genders to apply, as Haven loved you all.
