Avedis Zildjian Percussion Scholarship
In 1979 Craigie Zildjian, now company CEO, initiated a scholarship program targeted at preeminent music schools in the United States, Canada and the UK. Zildjian provides yearly funding for percussion scholarships at these schools, and in some cases Zildjian has fully endowed scholarships. The program is named in memory of Craigie Zildjian's grandfather, Avedis Zildjian III.
Each year the Jacobs School of Music is proud to award the Avedis Zildjian Percussion Scholarship to undergraduate and graduate students majoring in percussion at the School.
