Indicate that you are applying for a hardingfele scholarship on the form. Enclose the completed workshop registration form with your hardingfele scholarship application. You do not need to enclose a check with your workshop registration. Balchen/Hegge Scholarship applicants will be notified by May 10 so that additional fee payments, if any, can be arranged.
Work Scholarships for Attendees of our Annual Workshop
A very limited number of work scholarships covering approximately one-half of the workshop fee are available to support full-time attendance at the annual summer workshop. Workers assist with tasks such as light housekeeping, snack preparation, processing on-site registrations, and collecting concert admissions. If you have skills or an avocation that may be of use, such as videographer, sound technician or medical professional, please let us know. Contact the 2013 Workshop Chair by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org by April 15 to request a work scholarship. Successful applicants will be notified by May 10; you must send a completed registration form (see the main 2013 Workshop page) and check for registration and applicable housing fees by the June 20 workshop registration deadline to guarantee your position.
