First Congregational Lawrence Music Scholars

Our special partnership with the Lawrence University Conservatory of Music students has been established for more than sixty years. Through this program, students share their talents and enrich our worship. In return, the church provides stipends that help them to pay their educational expenses. An equally important goal of the program is to encourage these students to share their musical gifts with Christ’s church beyond their college years. Students may apply by audition invitation.

Organ Scholars

In an effort to support quality music in the church in future years, the Music Ministry Program sponsors up to three organ scholarships each year. Students must have a high level of piano skills to apply for these scholarships.
