Scholarship


The Largo Band of Gold Alumni Association is pleased to award scholarships to graduating high school seniors and undergraduate college students.  These scholarships, named after former Band of Gold Director Robert R. Cotter, are awarded to those students that most exemplify the teachings of Mr. Cotter, not only in school, but also at home and in the community. Members of the Largo High School instrumental music program, and family members of Band of Gold graduates under Robert Cotter are eligible.  Applications are accepted from November until mid March, and can be downloaded from this website during those dates.
