Spread the word: Carol Gordon Scholarship applications due May 15th

Are you interested in attending one of our summer Professional Development Learning Courses (PDLCs) to learn more? If yes, we encourage you to apply for a Carol Gordon PD Scholarship. Scholarship recipients can attend a summer PDLC for free, paying only travel/housing/food costs. This is a great opportunity to learn more about MLT, and share it with your music education students.
