Flatpicking Guitar Network

For Fans of Flatpicking Guitar Magazine

It's time to get your applications in for scholarships to Kamp this year.  We've updated the web page ( http://duscholar.home.mchsi.com ) and you can download the applications forms there.  If you know anyone who would qualify for a scholarship (i.e., has the motivation and desire to learn his or her musical instrument but lacks the financial wherewithal to attend), please encourage him or her to apply.  Application consists of answering a few questions concerning your desire to attend kamp and what you think you will get out of it.  We will be awarding the scholarships as soon as practical so that folks can get enrolled and should you not be awarded a scholarshipk, you will have time to pursue alternate means to get there.

We will have two instruments in the raffle this year - one is an OM guitar that is being built especially for the scholarship fund by Seth Naugler.  You will remember the magnificent dreadnought that Seth built for us in 2008.  It was a beautiful guitar and the OM he is building will be great, too.  You can check Seth's work at http://www.nauglerguitars.com, and the blog that he wrote while constructing the 2008 guitar is at http://nauglerguitars.com/kampguitar/.  Information on the second instrument in the raffle TBA.

Should you want to get in on this year's raffle, or to contribute to the scholarship fund, you can do so at http://duscholar.home.mchsi.com/donate.htm - chances are 5.00 each or 6 for 25.00.  

One of our major contributors is sponsoring a candidate on his own this year, and we're happy to see that.  We've also received a pledge from someone that will go a long way towards another scholarship.  But the majority of the scholarships are financed by your contributions, large or small - every one counts.

For answers to any questions or for more information, you can send an email to duscholar@mchsi.com.

In addition to the web site, you can make a contribution or get in on the raffle via snail mail.  Just send it to:
