Apply for the OPS Scholoarship

Each year OPS is proud to sponsor music scholarships for pipers and drummers who have participated in OPS competitions throughout the year. The scholarship recipient will be announced at the final OPS of the season on April 18, 2015.

Only current OPS members are eligible to be candidates for the scholarships and must have competed in at least two of the OPS season’s competitions (drummers need only have competed once).  Players in all grade levels of competition are eligible, including chanter and drum pad.

The scholarships awards are provided so that the recipients may attend the piping and drumming school of their choice. Tuition will be paid directly to the school of the winner’s choice.  

The number of scholarships to be awarded will be determined by the OPS board of directors.  Each year the Portland Highland Games Association has also awarded scholarships for pipers and drummers, which have been added to the OPS scholarship program and are awarded at the same time as the OPS scholarships in April.
