In addition to performing on NPR’s From the Top, recipients of the Jack Kent Cooke Young Artist Award receive up to $10,000 to help offset the costs of studying classical music at a high level. Each year, we choose approximately 20 exceptional pre-collegiate musicians ages 8-18 to receive the Award.
Upcoming deadlines to apply for the 2020-2021 season:
DEADLINE 1: September 15, 2020 NOW EXTENDED TO SEPTEMBER 30, 2020
HIGH SCHOOL SENIORS DEADLINE: December 4, 2020*
DEADLINE 2: January 4, 2021
DEADLINE 3: March 15, 2021
*High school seniors must apply by this date. The earlier a high school senior can apply, the better, as that will give us the opportunity to consider them for more shows before they graduate.
Who should apply?
Classical instrumentalists, vocalists, and composers (ages 8–18) who have not yet entered college.
See the website for a complete application requirements.
There is no application fee.
