2020 Jim Chapin Memorial Teacher Scholarship

One $1,000 scholarship will be awarded.

Eligibility: The scholarship is open to any full time instructor during the 2020–2021 academic year. No PAS Membership is required.

Application Materials: All applicants must submit a two minute YouTube video showing their classroom and discussing their commitment to teaching. Video must be uploaded to YouTube as public and unlisted. Videos longer than two minutes will not be accepted.

PLEASE NOTE: As of April 8, 2020, PAS has decided to put a hold on applications for all scholarships, which includes the Freddie Gruber Scholarship, John E. Grimes Timpani Scholarship, Armand Zildjian Percussion Scholarship, Fred Hoey Memorial Scholarship, the Larrie Londin Memorial Scholarship, and the Jim Chapin Memorial Teacher Scholarship until August 1.

We realize that due to widespread closures, access to percussion instruments is limited, and therefore the video requirement for a number of scholarships cannot be met. Applications received up to this point will still be eligible in August.

If you have any questions, please reach out to us by emailing percarts@pas.org.
