2017-2018 Jazz Scholarship Winners
The UMD Bernstein/Krenzen Jazz Scholarship was established in 1990 with the launching of the UMD Jazz Studies degree program. Through a gift from Jack Krenzen, the scholarship was designated for jazz studies majors, preferably those whose major instrument is the trumpet, in the name of Bernie Bernstein, a long-time area jazz supporter and musician.
The UMD Billy Barnard Jazz Scholarship was established in 1997 by the long-time faculty member and jazz studies instructor in the Department of Music at the University of Minnesota Duluth. He desired to see more scholarship funds available to UMD jazz studies students. The Billy Barnard Scholarship is to provide an annual scholarship award to a UMD Jazz Studies student who shows promise of contributing to the improvisational jazz community.
The UMD Eric Tobias Johnson Music Scholarship in memory of the UMD graduate and guitarist Eric Johnson is awarded to students pursuing a degree in music at UMD.
UMD Kathryn A. Martin Scholarship for Theatre, Jazz and Women’s Ice Hockey is presented to three students each year — one in theater, one in jazz and one in women’s ice hockey.
