If you can’t afford full tuition, we encourage you to apply for a scholarship, which may cover up to half of the camp fees. Scholarship recipients are not expected to compensate by working for CCMC (although helping hands are always appreciated).
Note that scholarships are provided for one week only, and are meant to subsidize those who could not otherwise afford to attend. If you register for both weeks, you are not eligible to receive a scholarship.
How To Apply
First, you must register for camp and pay a $200 deposit. On the registration form, check the box that says "I am applying for a scholarship." We will send you a scholarship application.
Your completed application must then be received within two weeks. Applicants will be notified by May 15, or within a week after sending in their application.
If we can't offer you a scholarship, your entire deposit will be returned and your registration voided.
Our best scholarship outreach is by word of mouth. Please let others know that reduced tuition scholarships are available. For more information, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with “CCMC Scholarship” in the subject line, or call us at 650-306-0399.
The Rob Sandiford Memorial Scholarship
The Rob Sandiford Memorial Scholarship provides full tuition for one week at CCMC.
Rob Sandiford was a veteran CCMC camper who died in a car crash in May 2016, along with his wife, Elise, while driving to the Strawberry Music Festival. His wonderful voice (whether singing lead or harmony) and instrumental virtuosity (playing guitar, mandolin, dobro, uke or banjo) made him a great jamming companion and a highly sought-after band member for student concerts.
He was a talented, generous musician and friend and his death left many of us with a deep sense of loss. This scholarship is intended to help keep his memory alive and remind us of the joy he brought to all who had the pleasure of knowing and making music with him.
Anyone may apply for the Rob Sandiford Memorial Scholarship. See "How To Apply" above.
The LaVon Morton Memorial Scholarship
The LaVon Morton Memorial Scholarship provides full tuition for one week at CCMC.
LaVon Morton was the mother and grandmother of longtime CCMC campers. Her love of art and music were an inspiration to all who knew her. She was especially supportive of music and always encouraged her kids and grand kids to perform at family gatherings. The purpose of this scholarship is to extend that support beyond the circle of her four children and fourteen grandchildren to the larger CCMC community. She believed that everyone who is motivated to make music should be given every opportunity to pursue it.
