Matt Fishman is a remarkable individual whose journey embodies resilience, courage, and an unwavering belief in the healing power of music. 

In September 2022, at the age of twenty-three, Matt was diagnosed with a Glioblastoma, a rare and aggressive form of brain cancer. Despite facing incredible odds, Matt’s spirit remains unbroken. A graduate of Northeastern University, Matt’s passions led him to pursue dual majors in mathematics and music. His love for music has been a guiding light throughout his life, providing solace and strength during his most challenging moments. 

Inspired by Matt’s resilience and unwavering belief in music’s healing power, this scholarship seeks to support aspiring musicians and composers who are facing challenges in their lives.

Any high school student who is pursuing music, either as a performer or composer, may apply for this scholarship opportunity if they have been impacted by cancer or another medical hardship, either personally or through a family member.

To apply, tell us why you’re passionate about pursuing music, what experience you have with music, how you have been affected by cancer or another medical hardship, and how music has helped you get through this obstacle.
