Student Sponsorships encourage highly qualified applicants to seek enrollment in NOI+F. Your philanthropic support helps keep our program tuition-free for all students, and allows us to provide merit-based housing stipends to select students every year. As a Student Sponsor, you can support the dream and development of a talented young musician.

You can also create a lasting impact through establishing an endowed fund to support the future of NOI+F. To learn more about becoming a Student Sponsor, or endowing a named fund, please contact Norah Quinn at or 301.405.6485.
