The AJRA awards numerous scholarships to its members each year.  Many of the scholarships are funds that are provided by special funds in memory of a former AJRA member, adult director or a person that has had a special connection to the AJRA organization through the years.  


The criteria to be able to apply and to receive a scholarship is as follows:


  • Must be a paid member in good standing with the AJRA and qualified to compete in the finals

  • Member must be a graduating senior of the current school year (2020) or a first year college freshman (provided you meet the age requirement of membership)

  • Must complete and turn in a written application form provided by the organization by the deadline

  • Must participate in a personal interview with the scholarship committee on the designated date and time during the finals

  • Must be present to receive the scholarship award during the designated performance
