Pratt Music Scholarship Information (Grades 2-12)

Do you know a student who would benefit form private music lessons but who is restricted by finances?


The Pratt Music Foundation's mission is to provide talented youth an opportunity to enhance their musical ability through private lessons. Music lessons are expensive and simply not an option for some children and families; this is where the Pratt Music Foundation comes in. The Foundation grants full music lesson scholarships to the Illinois Wesleyan University Music Preparatory Program.


Instruction is available in piano or strings (violin, viola, cello).


Music scholarships are awarded to area children in grades 2 through 12 each spring and are based on financial need, motivation, and talent.


Scholarships applications can be downloaded at and are available by mail (call 309-827-5534).


Applications are due by June 1st.
