Thomas Carmody Christmas School Scholarship Program

Applications Open: January 1, 2023 – March 31, 2023

Each year the IBRBS scholarship committee accepts, assesses, and awards up to twelve, $250 scholarships for full members to attend a qualified Christmas School, including in-person, online, and home-study programs. Christmas School scholarships, named in memory of Thomas “Tom” Carmody, our long-time Membership Officer, are a valued member benefit to grow and develop your skills as a Christmas character. For scholarships awarded in 2023, we will return to our usual submission schedule noted above.
