The Young Artist Scholarship
The JMCLA Young Artist Scholarship at the Brandeis-Bardin Collegiate Institute enables young artists to attend this remarkable institute. Each Young Artist spends up to one month participating in the many programs designed to promote understanding of the tenets and practices of Judaism in a non-denominational setting. This renowned summer program, directed by a notable faculty of scholars, brings together college-age musicians from the United States, Canada and Israel. JMCLA offers the scholarship to enlarge the palette with which the young artist will be able to express his or her music with new insights gained in this rich Jewish environment.
