The Largo Band of Gold Alumni Association is now accepting applications for the ninth annual Robert R. Cotter Memorial Scholarship.  This $2000 scholarship is awarded to a deserving student who most exemplifies the teachings of former Band of Gold Director Robert Cotter.  Starting this year, the eligibility requirements have been expanded to include undergraduate college students.  Applicants may now either be a graduating member of the Largo High School instrumental music program, or a family member of a Band of Gold graduate from 1968 to 1980 who are either high school seniors or enrolled in college.  Family members of Band of Gold graduates do not have to attend Largo High.  Any high school is acceptable.  Applications can either be downloaded or completed online by using the link on our homepage.  Applications must be submitted online, or postmarked no later than March 20, 2015.

The Robert R. Cotter Memorial Scholarship is funded entirely by donations and the sale of Band of Gold merchandise.  The Band of Gold Alumni Association has been approved as a charitable organization by the Internal Revenue Service, so donations are tax deductible.  Those interested in supporting the scholarship fund are urged to click on the "Donate" button on our homepage to give by using a credit card through Paypal.  Checks can be mailed to the following address:
