Shulz Memorial Fund

ShulzThe Shulz Memorial Fund was established in 1971 by Alberta Rehm Shulz (1892-1980) in honor of her husband, Adolph Robert Shulz, and her daughter Emilie Shulz. The members of the Shulz family were lifelong supporters of the arts and arts education. Mr. Shulz (1869-1963) was considered one of the founders of the Nashville, Indiana art colony, and his paintings were exhibited regularly in Nashville, Indianapolis, and Chicago. An accomplished pianist, Mrs. Shulz created this fund through a bequest to "aid talented young persons to obtain the education which will enable them to develop their skills and thereby make a valuable contribution to society." The Shulz family was particularly interested in assisting students specializing in the performance of traditional music.

The Shulz Memorial Fund provides scholarships for students who are exceptionally talented in piano, violin, or voice enrolled at the IU Jacobs School of Music.
