The Tucson Jazz Music Foundation awards tuition and travel scholarships to middle and high school students whose families are experiencing financial difficulties and/or other hardships. Candidates must have a desire to learn and practice, demonstrate their abilities through an audition process (for placement), and have the support of their families/ guardians as they honor the commitments and follow the prescribed guidelines set forth by the music program/school.
The Scholarship Application is provided in English and Spanish. Please download and follow the instructions on the application. For assistance in completing the application, contact Scott Black, firstname.lastname@example.org or call 520-971-6694.

We have established a Memorial Scholarship for Girls (ages 10-17) in Yvonne Ervin’s name and welcome donations in her memory. She was an advocate for ‘jazz music education’ and looked for ways to ’empower girls and women in jazz.’ We will do our best to continue her work with our youth. Miss you, Yvonne.
