Hello Center for Music Merit Scholarship Applicant,

Congratulations on being offered a Merit Scholarship from The Music Settlement's Center for Music!  This is an outstanding achievement.

At this time, you must formally accept your merit scholarship(s) from the Center for Music ("CFM").  For the 2020 - 2021 school year, we have simplified this process and moved it to an online format.

All merit scholarships must be accepted prior to the start of your lessons/course/ensemble.  Late acceptances will result in prorated scholarship amounts.

On this page, you will find the necessary documents you will need to accept or decline your merit scholarship(s).  Please read each document thoroughly before completing your acceptance form.

If you have any questions about the documents or about your merit scholarship(s), please contact Nikki Claverie (Administrator, Center for Music) at 216-421-5806 ext. 188 or email (Email is preferred and will result in a faster response.)

Congratulations again on your merit scholarship!  We look forward to seeing your progress this school year!


Nikki Claverie
Administrator, Center for Music
The Music Settlement

P.S. Merit scholarship award certificates will be distributed at a later date.  We appreciate your patience and understanding.
