The Jazzschool Institute awards unsolicited partial scholarships on occasion to qualified students based on a combination of artistic merit and financial need. Students must maintain an overall GPA of 3.0, and earn a C or higher in all classes, to remain eligible for scholarships. Students receiving a scholarship who earn a non-passing grade of C- or lower in any class are responsible for retaking that course at their own expense in order to remain eligible for the award.
