  • Scholarships
      
    The Stuart Music Fund subsidizes the cost of private music lessons, music camps and/or honor bands for young instrumental and vocal musicians. It is the goal of the fund to support and encourage musicianship among students attending Liberty Union High School District (LUHSD) schools or local junior high schools feeding into LUHSD.  Grants made to students will pay half the cost of private music lessons for six months, or a portion of the cost of music camps or honor bands.
