Suncoast Music Scholarships are offered to local students through a Sarasota Music Club and Artist Series Concerts of Sarasota partnership, formed in  2017. Scholarships are awarded to 10th through 12th grade students residing and attending school in Sarasota or Manatee County, based on auditions that are judged by invited area music professionals.

The 2023 Suncoast Music Scholarship will offer a total of $10,000. Auditions are scheduled for April 22; applications will be due no later than 5 p.m. on March 31.
