Paul M. Alberta Scholarship

The Massachusetts Instrumental and Choral Conductors Association is committed to music education and the future music educators in our state. Towards this end, MICCA has established a scholarship in the name of Paul M. Alberta, retired Director of Music in the Norwood Public Schools and a founding member of MICCA. An annual grant in the amount of $1000.00 will be given to a graduating Massachusetts senior who is pursuing a career in music education. It is MICCA's goal to promote music education as an exciting and rewarding career.

Who Should Apply?
Any student who is a permanent resident of Massachusetts, senior in high school, a member in good standing of their school music group, and is applying to colleges or universities with the intent of majoring in music education should consider applying for this scholarship.

Selection Process
Once all completed applications have been received, the MICCA Scholarship Committee will review all applications and award the scholarship based on involvement and commitment to the applicant's school music program and outside musical involvement. A brief essay that states the reasons for pursuing a career in music education and the recommendation of the applicant's current music director are also required.

Award Disbursement
A scholarship notice will be sent to to the recipient and his/her school for announcement at graduation ceremonies. Upon successful completion of first semester and matriculation to a second semester, a check will be made payable to the recipient of the scholarship.
