Friends of Music Scholarship Campaign

The Friends of Music have given over $1.5 million in scholarship contributions to the School of Music since 1978. With their gifts, the Friends of Music enable the MU School of Music to award scholarships to talented young musicians, enriching musical life on campus, in the community, and throughout the region. Contributors are recognized in the programs of the University Concert Series (for gifts and pledges made by June 30) and other publications, and are put on the mailing list for Music at Mizzou, the School of Music’s biennial magazine.
