About NFA Scholarships

The NFA provides financial support for promising students with scholarships named after flutists whose involvement in the NFA helped shape its vision and energy.

  • The Myrna Brown International Scholarship, named for the NFA’s first executive director and a passionate advocate for cultural exchanges through music, provides financial assistance to a flutist from a non-U.S. country to attend the NFA convention. Scholarship awarded biennially.
  • The Geoffrey Gilbert Scholarship prize is awarded to the NFA High School Soloist Competition first-place winner for further flute study with any teacher who is a member of the NFA.
  • The Deveau Scholarship is awarded for the outstanding performance of the NFA High School Soloist Competition commissioned work.
