Applications are now being accepted for the 2018 Instrument Top Scholarship, a financial contribution aimed at assisting students who are passionate about all aspects of music.

The Scholarship

Instrument Top will be awarding a total of $1,200 to one lucky student. Those interested in applying must submit an essay and proof of their eligibility no later than July 28th, 2018.

We will be announcing the winner on August 2nd, 2018.

Requirements & Eligibility

To be considered for the scholarship, you must be currently registered as a student in a high school, college or university.

You do not need to play a musical instrument to apply. All students, regardless of their major, are welcome to submit an application.

Past recipients of the scholarship are not eligible and should not apply.


Think of a popular tune or song that has lyrics.

Your task is to replace the original lyrics with new ones that help teach a concept or piece of information to someone.

The new song might be aimed at teaching children, helping language learners understand grammar concepts, a way for math students to memorize a formula, and so on. You must think of a new song title, as well.

Be creative and please write the title of the original song and artist at the top of your document for reference. Also, be sure to include an introduction that explains why you have chosen the particular song and whom you would like the new version to help.

Application Process

All applicants must send the following information to [email protected] no later than July 28th, 2018.
