Carolyn Talbert lived and breathed music throughout her life, exhibiting a clear passion and love for it.

Unfortunately, many people who share Carolyn’s love for music are discouraged from pursuing it in college. A lack of music programs in schools combined with a lack of appreciation for the arts results in many talented and creative students turning away from their dreams.

This scholarship seeks to honor the life of Carolyn Talbert by supporting students who share her passion for music and the performing arts.

Any high school senior or undergraduate student who has at least a 2.5 GPA and is interested in pursuing the performing arts or music may apply for this scholarship.

To apply, write an essay telling us about yourself, how you plan to make a difference through your artistic career, what you’re passionate about, how music has impacted your life, and what you would like to do in your community. Applicants who submit video performances in addition to the essay will be preferred.
