    65% that participate in the National Lunch Program. Private schools
    that do not participate in the National Lunch Program must serve a
    minimum of 65% of students that attend at no cost due to low income
    status.

    has beenoffered during the regular school day for a minimum
    of three consecutive years
    . If your school offers
    Orff/classroom music only, it is NOT eligible to apply.

  • Schools must have an instrumental music teacher who has been
    with the school for a minimum of two consecutive years.

  • Schools must have an existing inventory of instruments.

  • Schools must apply separately¬†(please provide
    information for the applying school only, do not include
    information for other schools within the district even if the music

    district can only apply for one school per grant cycle.

  • Full or partial requests may be awarded consisting of new
    and/or refurbished instruments.

  • Previously awarded schools must wait five years before
    reapplying.


Purpose: The Mr. Holland's Opus Foundation receives more than 1,000
applications each year. Although we would like to help all who
apply, our resources are limited and the process is very
competitive. Music programs serving low-income communities,
programs with little or no budget for musical instruments and music
programs that serve the most students out of the school population
are considered before all others. We encourage you to seek funding
from several sources in your community.
Deadline: 08-01-2014
