Scholarships and Fellowships

Some performers were born to make music. It's evident in their talent, dedication, and ability to connect with an audience. Even at a young age, they can transmit musical messages that move the soul.

While most people might think a career in music is daunting, this does not deter young and unwavering musicians from following their dreams.  But determination and support from family and friends does not always fulfill the needs of every student.  Even with monumental capabilities and a persistent drive, sometimes the students’ lack of resources outweighs their passions.  This is the where the assistance of our generous donors is absolutely vital. 

Nothing is more affirming for an aspiring musician, artist, or pedagogue than receiving a scholarship to the Jacobs School of Music.  For a student, there is not a more powerful vote of confidence that receiving such an honor from the nation’s top school.  Their hopes and dreams are confirmed, and a career path in music is made tangible by your generous support. 

Your gift endowing a scholarship for an undergraduate or a fellowship for a graduate student puts to rest every doubt that threatened to hold back that most promising artist. Your endowment, which continues in perpetuity, goes on year after year to transform lives. Not only are your recipients able to explore and master their craft within the world-class academic environment of Indiana University, but your gift also reaches these musicians' countless audiences who are immeasurably nourished by your dedication to keeping music alive.
