  • Clarinda's Glenn Miller Birthplace Society is offering scholarships of $3,000, $2,000 & $1,000 to instrumentalists. The vocal scholarships will also be $3,000, $2,000 & $1,000. These scholarships, which are awarded without regard to any other award, may be used for any education-related expense. It is not the purpose of this competition to select Glenn Miller look-alikes or sound-alikes, nor is it limited to pop music performance. Rather, in honoring Glenn, we wish to seek out and assist promising young talents in any field of applied music who may be musical leaders of tomorrow.

    Scholarships will be awarded to graduating high seniors and first-year college students who intend to make music a central part of their future. Those who have entered as high school seniors are eligible to compete again as college freshmen, unless they have been previous first place winners. This is a 3-phase competition.
