The Justin Veatch Fund will award its sixth annual music scholarships in June, 2014, to graduating high school seniors planning further study in music. This year once again there will be three $1,000 scholarships and students outside of Yorktown are eligible. The awards honor the late Justin Veatch, the Yorktown High School senior who died of an accidental drug overdose in 2008. A downloadable application for the scholarship is available here and must be returned by April 30th.
The Justin Veatch Fund is a 501(c)3 organization and a recognized New York charity. In addition to the annual scholarships The Fund creates a variety of programs for talented musical teens including a two-day summer music workshop held in August. We also sponsor an annual concert. On September 20, 2014 Livingston Taylor will headline our fall concert.
