General Scholarship Information

Three Slotkin Music Scholarships are available for the 2017/18 academic year. Students entering grades 9-12, who demonstrate exceptional ability and dedication as musicians, strong academic achievement, and potential to contribute to the school community, are eligible to be considered for this award.

The successful candidates will be awarded an annual scholarship of $10,000 to attend Cranbrook Schools.


The recipients of the Slotkin Scholarship will be either an instrumentalist or a vocalist. For those students who qualify for admission to Cranbrook, but are not selected as a Slotkin Scholar, the possibility for need-based financial aid exists. The winner of the award is expected to make a significant contribution to the music program while attending Cranbrook Schools.
