Healey Scholarship

The Jefferson City Cantorum is offering the J. Patrick Healey Scholarship to graduating seniors in the Jefferson City area who have participated in choral music. 


This scholarship is awarded in recognition of Mr. Healey’s contribution to the Jefferson City community through his 38 years as director of the Jefferson City Cantorum community choir.  The scholarship will be awarded to a senior student who has shown an exceptional interest in choral music by actively participating in the choral music program and who plans to attend college in the fall, regardless of his/her intended major.


Applicants must be students at Jefferson City High School, Helias High School, Calvary Lutheran High School, Linn High School, Blair Oaks High School, and Southern Boone High School, or be a home-schooled student residing in the area served by one of those schools.


To apply for the scholarship, the student must submit a completed common scholarship application  (link to application),  including the two short essays listed on the common scholarship application.  A high-school counselor must sign the form at the bottom of the second page.  (In the case of home-schooled students, a parent must sign the form.)


Applicants also must submit:

  1. A brief written personal statement by the student about the importance of singing in his/her life. 
  2. A brief resume highlighting the student’s musical “career,” including musical instruction, activities, and performances. 
  3. A brief recommendation from a choral director familiar with the student’s work as a member of a chorus. 

All requirements listed must be met, or the application will not be considered. 


Applications should be mailed to:

Nancy Kettenbrink
723 Earl Lee Drive
Jefferson City, MO 65109


Applications must be received by Friday, Feb. 17.  The school of the scholarship recipient (or, in the case of a home-schooled student, the recipient’s parent) will be notified on Monday, March 6.  The scholarship will be awarded at the Cantorum’s spring concert at 7:00 p.m. on Saturday, May 6.  Free tickets will be provided to the recipient and her or his family members.
