Piping Scholarship

In 2018, the Trustees offered a new scholarship, one that encourages Piping and hopefully a long term commitment to a MacGregor Piper. This scholarship will provide funds for a full week of tuition, board and meals at the North American Academy of Piping and Dancing, based in Valle Crucis, NC. This is next door to the site of the Grandfather Mountain Highland Games and is held around the Games. To apply, go to the Piping Scholarship application.
