Yosemite Songwriting Retreat would like to recognize and honor Jayme Kelly Curtis. She was a huge part of the YSR family and helped to launch this retreat with her skills as an organizer as well as her immense talents in songwriting and teaching.  She was a shoulder to lean on as well as a notable teacher at YSR for 3 years.  Jayme gave her time and experience to many musicians and promoted others without personal gain. She  inspired the gifts of songwriting, song circles and jamming.  We do not want to forget her.  

Each year we will choose a participant for a full scholarship in Jayme’s honor. We award this scholarship based on community involvement and advocacy for YSR.  Jayme certainly was both.  If you would like to apply for the scholarship, please complete the form below. If you have a desire to donate to the Jayme Kelly Curtis memorial scholarship, we would appreciate it. Make a donation.

If you don’t need a full scholarship but would like some help paying your tuition fees, please apply for our regular scholarship.
