Since 2005, From the Top and the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation have awarded more than $3.4 million to driven and committed young musicians with financial need.
Recipients are granted up to $10,000 to help offset the often prohibitively expensive costs of studying classical music at a high level. They can apply the award towards instrument purchases, summer camp tuition, college audition travel expenses, private lessons, or other music-related needs.
All Jack Kent Cooke Young Artists participate in From the Top’s Learning and Media Lab, a 4-week remote learning program, which culminates in a community engagement activity and recording their appearance on From the Top’s NPR radio program.
The Jack Kent Cooke Young Artist Award program is currently accepting applications through April 15*. Learn more about how to apply at fromthetop.org/apply.
*Please note: High school seniors graduating in 2023 are no longer eligible to apply.
