Newly Formed Foundation Offers Scholarships in Memory of Music Student

The Sky Velvet Vassar Music Foundation was established to honor the memory of an APS student who died unexpectedly when she was 13.

The Sky Velvet Vassar Music Foundation was established to honor the memory of Sky Velvet Vassar and is dedicated to young people and their pursuit of musical studies.

Sky was an accomplished flutist, cellist, violinist and pianist. The foundation’s philosophy reflects her artistic appreciation and seeks to inspire those who share her remarkable passion and talent for all arts—most especially music.

The Foundation firstly seeks to grant two kinds of music scholarships to student applicants who demonstrate an interest in altruistic aspects of life, compassion, mindfulness and musical promise.

Skybird Scholarships are offered to youth ages 8 to 14 so that they may attend Hummingbird Music Camp in Jemez Springs, NM The Sky Velvet Vassar Music Foundation will provide one third of the camp tuition and one third will be given in-kind by Hummingbird Music Camp. The student will be responsible for the final one third of the camp tuition. (The current weekly tuition is $639.)

Beginning in 2014, the Sky Velvet Vassar Music Foundation will also award Musical Note Scholarships to outstanding high school graduates desiring to attend renowned performing arts conservatories located in the United States.

The Sky Velvet Vassar Music Foundation looks forward to supporting many diverse future projects for youth and music. For more information and scholarship applications, visit www.skyvelvetvassar.com.
