Summer Band Camps offer life-changing experiences to students from grades 7th through 12th. Many summer camps around the country offer a variety of music education experiences.
Round Rock High School band/guard members in grades 9-11 and all future RRHS band members in grades 7-8 from Cedar Valley, Chisholm Trail and Walsh Middle Schools participating in any approved summer instrumental/color guard band camp are eligible to apply for summer band camp/guard scholarships awarded by the Round Rock High School band boosters. The scholarship may also be applied toward DCI fees.
A committee of parents appointed by the Round Rock Band Boosters executive board will select the scholarship recipients. Selections will be based on the student's application and an evaluation from the student's band director.
Students who receive this scholarship are ineligible to receive it again the following year.
