Rating and scoring

Three Criteria:
  • 50 points: Artistic Quality
  • 25 points: Capability
  • 25 points: Impact


– Does the student currently evidence a high level of aptitude and skill in their chosen field for their current age?


– Is the course of study appropriate for the student? Has the applicant provided substantial evidence that there is a strong commitment on the part of the student, instructor, and parents?


– Is the course of study likely to achieve the intended goals? Will support for the application provide an opportunity not otherwise available to the student (because of economic need, geographic isolation, or lack of appropriate expertise/opportunity within the community to pursue specific artist development/genre)?
