Glenn Miller Scholarship Competition
Clarinda’s Glenn Miller Birthplace Society is offering scholarships of $4,000, $2,000 and $1,000 to instrumentalists. The vocal scholarships will also be $4,000, $2,000 and $1,000. These scholarships, which are awarded without regard to any other award, may be used for any education-related expense.
Scholarships will be awarded to graduating high school seniors or first-year college students who intend to make music a central part of their future life. Those who have entered as high school seniors are eligible to compete again as college freshmen, unless they have been previous first place winners.
Applicants submit an audition CD or tape and application postmarked by March 1st. No more than 10 vocalists and 10 instrumentalists will be chosen to be finalists who will compete in Clarinda in June. Three vocalists and three instrumentalists will be chosen as scholars who will perform at the Stage Show of the Glenn Miller Festival. At this time, the scholarship awards will be presented.
