Posted on: December 11, 2019

“Good news for Detroit students,” writes Bisma Parvez in Tuesday’s (12/10) Detroit Free Press. “The world-renowned Interlochen Arts Camp has more financial aid than ever before for Detroit youth, grades 3-12, in hopes of making the Interlochen experience accessible to all families. Interlochen has more than $140,000 in scholarship funds for the 2020 arts camps—the most financial aid ever reserved for Detroit students in Interlochen’s history. Students can apply for need- and merit-based scholarships and full-tuition scholarships are also available. Other Michigan students are also able to apply for scholarships with financial aid earmarked for youth in northern Michigan, southeast Michigan, and Grand Rapids. Detroit-based arts organizations that have partnered with Interlochen to award scholarships include the Detroit Children’s Choir, the Detroit Symphony Orchestra’s Civic Youth Ensemble, Inside Out, the Michigan Opera Theatre and Children’s Choir, the Royal Oak Young Artist Competition, and the Sphinx Organization…. More than 70 percent of students who apply for assistance to attend Interlochen Arts Camp receive financial aid, [Interlochen President Trey Devey] said…. Interlochen’s 1,200-acre campus in Grand Traverse County in northern lower Michigan hosts 2,500 students each summer.”0
