About the Program
Designed for African-American and Latinx students interested in a music career, the Musical Pathway Fellowship (MPF) Program—sponsored by the Cleveland Foundation and George Gund Foundation—provides exceptional artistic training delivered by CIM faculty. One-on-one lessons, ensemble experience and participation as well as training in music theory and eurhythmics are offered. The MPF program will provide ongoing, multi-year support to students, including comprehensive music instruction through high school, with a goal of preparing them to enter a conservatory or university music program upon graduation. Fellows will receive a full scholarship covering all areas of study in the program.
