Why do we do this?

Ashley LOVED to play the violin. As a teenager, she still found time to play her instrument and study and help others even with all of her "teenager" events and distractions, BUT, even more important, we saw an incredable change in Ashley as she learned to play. Her grades improved and her ability to strive for and attain greater success and knowledge was inspirational.

When can I apply?

Applications are accepted throughout the year and should be submitted to allow enough time to contact you if additional information is needed as well as time for the foundation directors to review and make their recommendation on your application. The directors are NON-paid volunteers and live in different cities across the southeast United States. Compiling the application information and delivering it to the directors takes time. Be sure to allow as much time as possible for your application to be considered. The applications are evaluated on a "First Come, First Served" basis and are NOT considered until 100% of the application requirements are met. That includes the receipt of letters of recommendation as required by the application standards.
