SkyBird Scholarships

I went to Hummingbird Music Camp... the experience changed my musical life. There are a handful of opportunities in life worth not missing. For me, Hummingbird is one of the first on the list.
- Ulysses Yarbrough, SVVMF Scholarship Recipient

The Sky Velvet Vassar Music Foundation provides Skybird Scholarships to inspire youth from New Mexico ages 8-14 to attend the Hummingbird Music Camp, a summer music and recreation camp located in Jemez Springs, New Mexico.

Nestled in the Jemez Mountains of New Mexico, Hummingbird Music Camp offers every young musician an opportunity to grow under the guidance of a talented and nurturing staff. This safe and lovingly structured social environment provides a home away from home for young people to express themselves and their talents. Removed from city congestion, campers will sleep in a dorm with new friends, swim in the river, hike to a waterfall and practice their instruments outside.

Selected students must demonstrate musical promise, a love of the arts, leadership, compassion, and a strong sense of community. The Sky Velvet Vassar Music Foundation will provide 1/3 of the camp tuition, 1/3 will be given in-kind by Hummingbird Camp and 1/3 will be contributed by the student. The 2018 camp tuition is $650 per week (plus taxes and fees).

If you feel you qualify for a Skybird Scholarship, please download and submit an application by Monday, May 1, 2018 via mail or email info@skyvelvetvassar.com.
