ISYM Scholarships

The Guild of the Champaign-Urbana Symphony Orchestra is proud to provide scholarships every year to the Illinois Summer Youth Music (ISYM) camp. ISYM is a series of weeklong programs in June and July at the University of Illinois for talented young musicians from grades 6–12.

Each spring, the Guild holds scholarship auditions open to all Champaign County students. The Guild awards 5 partial tuition scholarships for students grades 6–8 and 5 partial scholarships for senior high school students. All qualified students who play orchestral instruments (voice and acting entries are not eligible) and meet the eligibility requirements in the ISYM Application Form (available at isym.music.illinois.edu/apply/index.php) may audition for a scholarship.

Auditions for 2016 scholarships have already been held. Please check back in the spring for information on 2017 scholarship auditions!
