The CJC awards unsolicited partial scholarships on occasion to qualified students based on a combination of artistic merit, financial need and the particular needs of the program at the time of inquiry. Students must maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.0, and earn a C or higher in all classes, to remain eligible for scholarships. Note: students receiving a scholarship who earn a non-passing grade of C– or lower in any required courses are responsible for retaking those courses at their own expense.

The following scholarships are awarded to CJC students who demonstrate a combination of artistic promise, commitment to excellence, and financial need on an as-available basis:

The Jamey Aebersold Scholarship
Established in honor of Jamey Aebersold, one of the world’s leaders in jazz education and performance, the Jamey Aebersold Scholarship provides financial support for promising CJC students.

The William E. Robinson Scholarship
The William E. Robinson Scholarship is awarded to a CJC student who demonstrates commitment to excellence in the fields of jazz and related styles of music.

Work Study
The California Jazz Conservatory offers work-study opportunities
on an as-available basis. Work-study positions may include accompaniment, light office work, bookstore staffing and more. Please contact the Dean of Instruction regarding availability of work-study positions.

The Word

“John Gove is an incredible professor with extensive knowledge in jazz theory. He teaches theory how it should be taught, which is direct application to your instrument in a playing context. I’ve never taken a better theory class with such a fine professor.”
