The 2nd District Hopson Scholarship Application is now live!

The San Francisco/Second District PTA is excited to announce the Hopson Scholarship Award.  The Hopson Scholarship is a cash award of $3,500 and is open to SFUSD high school seniors who will be entering college next year and intend to major in or be deeply interested in classical voice or piano as demonstrated by classwork, professional training, extra-curricular, or related experience.  Scholarship will be paid directly to the school where student enrolls.

In addition, we are looking for students who:

  • Are under-represented in the arts and have financial need for additional scholarship funding in college.
  • Are currently attending a traditional or charter high school in the San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD).
  • Will be enrolled in an accredited post-secondary (college/university) program within one year after their high school graduation.  For students considering a gap year, please email us at HopsonScholarship@sfpta.org

A letter of recommendation from a teacher, staff member, or professional who can comment on your skills and experience in music is required.  There is also space on the application to upload your music samples.

Applications for the Hopson Scholarship Award will be accepted on a rolling basis through April 30, 2024.  Applications will be reviewed in May and our finalists will be announced the first week of June.
