Cleveland Blues Society Scholarship

Coming soon: 2021 CBS Scholarship Application Form

The CBS scholarship program is funded primarily through the proceeds of the CBS Annual Blues Cruise, membership, merchandise sales and other fundraising events.  CBS is a non-profit 501(c)(3) and you may also make tax-deductible contributions directly to the CBS Scholarship Fund.  The fund may only be used for scholarship and educational opportunities, which was the reason for creating a separate account.  Details about the 2021 Scholarship Program will be announced in the Fall.
