Mike Grinter Memorial Young Musician Scholarship

Boxwood is pleased to announce the Mike Grinter Memorial Young Artists Scholarship program and offer tuition assistance for this year’s festival in Queenscliff, VIC. Mike, a great friend and master craftsman dedicated his lifetime’s work to making flutes of the highest calibre from his workshops in Chewton, Ennis & Thailand. In memory of Mike, and in honour of his work, a scholarship in his name has been established, for supported participation at Boxwood Australia.

The 2020 Mike Grinter Memorial Scholarship is open to all applicants who will be under 30 years of age as of 1 March, 2020. Scholarships are open to players of all instruments as well as singers and dancers. In order to accommodate as many people as possible, scholarships may be awarded to cover a portion of the tuition. Those wishing to apply should send a letter describing their musical journey thus far and provide a sample of their playing or singing. Please email your application before 1 February, 2020. Accommodation during the week is the responsibility of the recipient.
