Treasure Coast Jazz Society

Scholarship Endowment Program

Each year we make available educational scholarships to qualified senior students attending Treasure Coast area high schools, junior colleges and preparatory schools.

We offer auditions to those students who have a desire to major in advanced music, music education, or who want to further hone their musical talents, including jazz.

Since The Treasure Coast Jazz Society was founded, we have awarded more than $140,000 in scholarships to local students.
