Encore Tours, the performance travel division of ACIS Educational Tours, is offering a $1,000 World Music Scholarship to collegiate Sinfonians. Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia was negotiating the spring scholarship, when Encore generously offered to make the fall scholarship available to us as well! But we are very close to the deadline for fall entries, so you must enter no later than 12:00 midnight CDT on Wednesday, October 15. Candidates for the scholarship must write an essay of 750-1500 words on the topic:

“Discuss in what ways music can be considered an international language”

Encore Tours brings choral, instrumental, dance, and theater groups to the world stage through customized performance tours overseas. Encore has agreed to offer an additional World Music Scholarship in spring 2015. We are pleased to be able to bring you this opportunity for supplemental financial assistance, and encourage you to take advantage of the offer by writing your essay today.

Encore Tours will select a single winner from the pool of applicants, and will issue a check directly to the winner at the home address provided on the entry form. Notification letters will be distributed directly by Encore Tours on January 1, 2015.
