At Project STEP, students who stand out for their skills and accomplishments are recognized each year as special Scholars. Named for people who made generous donations to support Project STEP’s students, the Scholars are strong role models for all students who strive to do their best in the program. The funds donated by those who support Scholars are used by Project STEP to help pay for the comprehensive curriculum of lessons, classes, ensembles, workshops, performance opportunities, and enrichment activities that all students receive.
