Special Scholarships

One of OKYO's Core Values is that music is for everyone! Our Team and Board of Directors desire that no student or family walk away from Oklahoma Youth Orchestras due to financial hardship. We fundraise year-round to be able to provide scholarships for families in need. If you are unsure whether or not your family is eligible for a scholarship, please contact Executive Director Kris Markes.

Criteria for Awarding Scholarships

Special scholarships will be granted based upon availability of funds, demonstrated financial/family need, and level of commitment expressed by the student. Assistance will only be given in the form of credit toward membership dues.
We strongly encourage any student or family with financial concerns to reach out to our Conductors or Support Team - we are here to help and want to remove barriers for students wishing to join OKYO.

*Trip expenses, rentals, merchandise, and fees are not included.
