The Greater Portland Flute Society is offering three high school or middle school students an opportunity to receive a $300 grant for private flute lessons with a GPFS teacher during the school year. Selection is based on financial need, playing ability, and enthusiasm for the flute. Students may not receive the grant more than three times. More information is available on the Study Grant Page.
