May I choose classes from the Special Studies catalog?
Yes, almost every course offered on the Institution grounds is available to you. We do not provide transportation for any course offered off the grounds. $300 of your scholarship is reserved for Special Studies classes and $25 for materials. After you have used the allotted amount, any additional courses are at your own expense. No more than half of the $300 may be used for private music instruction. You will be asked to select a minimum of one class per week for Weeks 2 and 3 only. The classes are for personal enrichment and offer a supportive learning environment with students of all ages and skills.
What is required of me after the scholarship program ends?
You are expected to send a written report to the IOKDS Branch representative who sponsored your application.
