The mission of the Pratt Music Foundation is to encourage talented youth in the Bloomington-Normal area to pursue classical music studies. The foundation grants scholarships to the Illinois Wesleyan University music preparatory program.

Instruction is available in piano or the string instruments (violin, viola, cello, bass). Pratt Music Foundation scholarships are awarded to area students in kindergarten through 12th grade. The scholarships are based on financial need, talent, and motivation.

Applications are due by June 1. Recipients are notified before the beginning of the fall term. Each scholarship covers one school year of instruction and summer lessons.

Downloadable applications are available. For more informationĀ or to request an application, call (309) 827-5534.
