Need-Based Financial Assistance

In 1986, the Advisory Board of The Athens Community Music School established a Need-Based Scholarship Fund (now known as “Need-Based Financial Assistance”) through the Ohio University Foundation, the University’s institutionally-related, nonprofit, tax exempt, 501(c)(3) organization. Since then, ACMS annually raises money that supports participation in music lessons, classes, and ensembles at the Athens Community Music School for families and individuals in Southeast Ohio with the desire to enrich their lives with music, but who are struggling financially.
