The paramount reason for involvement with the UNCP Marching Band should always be the love of the activity - not the money! If your first question when considering membership is - "If I play in the band, how much do I get?" - then the UNCP band program is not the right place for you.
Members of the "Spirit of the Carolinas" are eligible for stipends as the budget allows. All awards are mailed to students at the end of the semester of participation.
Stipends are based on the years of service to the "Spirit of the Carolinas" Marching Band, meaning that students will be eligible for a higher amount each year they participate.
In order to be awarded a stipend, you must meet the following criteria:
1) attend all required functions as assigned
2) meet criteria as established in the band handbook
