With the generosity of her family, the DMTA is pleased to announce the Susan Kosempa Teacher Enrichment Grant. This grant is for independent music teachers who are DMTA members to use toward tuition, registration, travel, and other expenses towards a music project. These projects may include NCMTA workshop classes, NCMTA conference, MTNA convention, private lessons, and other continuing education opportunities. Teachers who receive a grant will give a report or program to the membership about their experience.

Each $125 grant will be made available in the Fall, and another in the Spring.  Applicants must fill out the application by the deadline and the committee will award one applicant each semester. Financial need does not need to be demonstrated in order to receive this grant.
