NEW YORK - Oct. 23, 2018 - PRLog -- The New York Youth Symphony is excited to announce that two fellowship opportunities for the 2018/19 season are now available! The Vargas-Vetter/Ukena Fellowship, made possible by NYYS trustee Rima Vargas-Vetter and her husband Paul Ukena, and the Van Lier Fellowship, made possible by a grant from the New York Community Trust.

The Vargas-Vetter/Ukena Fellowship is available to students from underserved communities between the ages of 12 and 22 in the NYYS orchestra, chamber music, jazz, conducting, composition, and musical theater composition programs. Fellowships will last one or two years. Awarded fellows will participate in NYYS programs (including performances, rehearsals, sectionals, master classes and workshops) and receive a $5,000 stipend to offset costs of NYYS fees, private lessons, travel, and instrument maintenance. Fellows will be paired with a mentor who will guide them throughout their fellowship and work together to advise them on their musical education and career goals. Five fellowships will be awarded. Fellows are eligible to receive a full-tuition scholarship to the Interlochen Center for the Arts summer music camp. Fellows will participate in NYYS community outreach activities.

The four, two-year Van Lier Fellowships are designed to identify, train, and mentor students from underserved communities who wish to prepare for and attend college. Open to NYYS students who are sophomores in high school, we encourage black, Latinx, and LGBTQ students to apply. Fellows will receive a $5,000 stipend to offset costs of NYYS fees, private lessons, travel, and instrument maintenance. Fellows will be paired with a mentor who will guide them throughout their fellowship and work together to create a personalized roadmap to college. Fellows are eligible for full tuition scholarships to the Interlochen Center for the Arts summer music camp. Fellows will participate in NYYS community outreach activities.
