Win Scholarship Money to Indiana University at the NHDI State Contest!

Hot from the Development Office:

The Cole Porter Scholarship for Indiana Musical Heritage

Indiana’s past is filled with the stories of musical legends. From the jazz clubs of old Indiana Avenue to the contributions of greats like Cole Porter and Hoagy Carmichael, Indiana’s singers, songwriters and composers have made incredible contributions to the American music scene. Named after one of Indiana’s foremost composers, the Cole Porter Scholarship for Indiana Musical Heritage will recognize an outstanding senior category project at the state level in the National History Day in Indiana competition which explores Cole Porter and his impact on American music. Projects can explore any number of topics surrounding Cole Porter – his life, music and influence on other musicians and composers. One award will be given to a high school senior participating in one of the following categories: paper, exhibit, performance, documentary or website. Only one award will be given during the 2012 competition.
 
The Cole Porter Scholarship for Indiana Musical Heritage is open only to high school juniors and seniors. In 2012, the recipient will be awarded a $1,000 scholarship to be applied toward his or her first year of tuition at Indiana University. The recipient must attend Indiana University in the fall of 2012 to receive the award.

Cole Porter

Note that this scholarship is only available to 11th and 12th grade students. Projects must relate to Cole Porter in some way and must compete at the state contest to be eligible. Qualifying candidates for the scholarship award will be judged on their project and a short essay which will be due on the registration due date for the state contest, April 6, 2012. Good luck, students!
