Financial Awards to high school seniors who plan to major in music have been a major focus of the Royal Oak Musicale since 1953. Beginning in 1953 through 1973, money was raised through our March Fundraiser, card parties and rummage sales. During this time 38 students were awarded financial gifts totaling $8,825.

As part of the 50th Anniversary Celebration (1974), Past Presidents formed the Student Aid Fund to support the financial awards program.  Since then, over $209,000 has been awarded to 307 students majoring in music. The Student Aid Fund is a 501 (c)(3) Fund.

Each Spring, Royal Oak Musicale provides monetary awards to talented high school seniors. Award amounts begin at $1,000. Former winners who are pursuing their degree are eligible to receive a Renewal. Grace Brockett is Chair of the Student Financial Award Committee.
