Each year since 2002, the Choral Society of the Hamptons has offered scholarships for vocal training, named in honor of Norman Dello Joio, Doris and William Leese, and Charlotte Rogers Smith. High school juniors and seniors are recommended by the heads of their schools’ vocal departments, and home-schooled students at the equivalent levels are encouraged to participate.

Scholarships average $500 each, and interested students must submit an application and audition. Details are available in an application package, which can be downloaded here.
