In addition to interactive musical presentations, OMHOF awards yearly scholarships to selected graduating Oregon high school seniors who have exhibited serious pursuit and accomplishment in their personal musicianship – and who are college-bound music majors. Recipients are publicly recognized at an award presentation where each performs onstage, demonstrating mastery of his/her instrument.
We strive to inspire the continuing of higher musical education by offering assistance with college expenses, so that musical students may aspire to the level of those that have musically made an impact before us and the immense variety they created. We have four scholarships for high school seniors entering college. We also have a 5th OMHOF College Scholarship specifically for a female Oregon high school student: Women in Music Scholarship: In Memory of Gloria Johnson by Bill Johnson. Applicant must be a female Oregon high school graduate in the Spring of continuing college studies in Fall in the area of college study (major) in: Broadcasting (radio/web), Communications/PR, Music Therapy, Music Technology, Music Business, Music Theory, Music Production.
