USBands and our partners give back to students from schools who participate in our events by offering scholarship opportunities. USBands scholarships go to at least two students who:
At least one scholarship is awarded to a student who will be pursuing further education in music, and another scholarship is awarded to a student pursuing any higher education. Higher education includes but is not limited to vocational training, conservatory and other college degrees.
USBands Scholarship recipients will be determined by the USBands Advisory Board and announced in November. Scholarships provided by our partners are subject to separate rules and considerations.
Check back soon for application information.

USBands hosts events throughout the year aimed to help you improve your band programs and become better leaders.
Whether you're already in a leadership position or becoming a leader in your band program is your goal, this is your opportunity to learn the skills you need from those who know what it means to be a good leader.
Marching band and color guard students of all ages and skill levels are encouraged to join USBands and The Cadets for an exciting, full-day clinic experience. See what it feels like to be a Cadet for the day as the Cadets Staff guides students through a curriculum of musical and visual performance techniques as well as leadership skills. Students will then get to show off what they've learned alongside the members of The Cadets in their section! This is guaranteed to be one of the best days of your summer, but that's not all we have in store! Each clinic day will culminate with attendance at an unforgettable DCI show that evening, included in the cost of registration!
Events Calendar Coming Soon
