Glenn Miller Scholarship Competition

Glenn Miller Scholarship Competition
Glenn Miller Scholarship Competition is open to high school seniors or college freshman who are interested in a career in instrumental music or singing. Students must compete for the scholarship by submitting a CD of their vocal or instrumental performance and compete for the final award.

Students may apply in one category only, instrumental or vocal. A total of three vocalists and three instrumentalists will be chosen to receive scholarships. The scholarships may be used for educational expenses at any four-year college or university. The scholarship competition is open to both U.S. and non-U.S. students.

Funding for the Glenn Miller Scholarship Competition comes from the Glenn Miller Birthplace Society based in Clarinda, Iowa. Since 1976, the organization has been awarding scholarships to support musical leaders of tomorrow with educational expenses.

Glenn Miller was born in Clarinda, Iowa, and became one of the most popular Big Band performers during the 1930's and 1940's. His music remained popular worldwide throughout the years. The scholarships were initiated by Clarinda citizens who loved his music and decided to honor him by encouraging more young people to consider the field of music as their career.

The deadline for this scholarship is usually in MARCH of each year, and the award amount is usually $1,000 - $4,000.
