Drum Corps Scholarship

Lake Area Independent Winterguard is happy to announce that we will be offering a scholarship for an individual competing with a Drum Corps International affiliated organization during the 2019 season that is spinning with an LMCGPC Color Guard Unit during the 2019 season!

Part of Lake Area Independent's mission is to provide educational opportunities for young performers in the gulf coast region. The Board of Directors of Lake Area Independent decided to offer this scholarship as a means of helping a member that is financially in need while representing our area on a nationally competitive stage. Although this scholarship is being offered by Lake Area Independent, it is open for ALL members of LMCGPC color guards that will be marching drum corps to apply.

Qualifications:
• MUST be a member of a 2019 LMCGPC scholastic OR independent color guard unit
• MUST have a member contract OR have received a callback for a DCI drum corps for the 2019 season

The value of the scholarship is a $500 donation to the recipient's drum corps fees that will be directly paid to the drum corps once the recipient provides proof of a signed member contract.
