On Mother's Day 2008 a group of Orlando Edgewater High School Eagle Alumni started talking and realized the music programs at Orlando Edgewater High School were in a very large need for assistance. And without assistance these programs were in danger of vanishing forever. As a result the group, a mixture of band alumni and non-band alumni from the William H Thomas years formed the Edgewater High School Band 1974-1979 Alumni Association, Inc. (now the EHSBAA, Inc)

One of the missions of this group is to help keep music in our schools by raising money for music related scholarships for Central Florida High School Seniors.

EHSBAA Scholarships for College or Postgraduate Study in
Traditional or Traditionally Derived Music

Funds provided to individuals in the form of merit-based scholarships and or need-based scholarships to students enrolled in undergraduate or graduate degree-granting institutions.

These scholarships allow musically talented and or needy individuals to pursue college and university degrees focusing on traditional or traditionally derived music studies at an eligible US educational institution. Recipients must be pursuing a course of study focusing on traditional or traditionally derived music. Individual recipients must provide proof of enrollment, grade point average, eligible area studies, and in some cases need-based eligibility. The degree-granting institution must substantiate these criteria upon request. The number and amount of scholarships awarded each year will depend on the net revenues available to the EHSBAA. These scholarship funds can be used for tuition and fees.
