The Robert Carwithen Music Foundation is designed to encourage organists to prepare for using their musical gifts in the Church and other performance venues.

The R.C.M.F. awards scholarships/grants to students enrolled at a participating university/school of music, who are studying, or will study organ with the intent of committing themselves to church service in the position of organist/choirmaster, active church musician, or pianist.

Students wishing to apply for a R.C.M.F. scholarship/grant may contact the Head of the Music Department at one of these participating schools of music.
