Scholarships

$30,000 to start a new named scholarship

The declared yield is set by the Trustees and is currently at 4%.                      30,000 X 4% = 1200 per year

Current top music scholarship is $5000 and has been that for several years.  We need to move to $6000.  $150,000 is needed to yield $6000 each year.

$1,000,000 would yield $40,000 each year

 

We would like to be an All-Steinway School

To become an All-Steinway School, 90% or more of the acoustic pianos owned by an institution must be Steinway & Sons, Boston or Essex pianos.

We currently have 54 pianos on campus, 21 of which are either Boston or Steinway (39%).  To achieve the 90% requirement, 49 of the 54 pianos must be Steinway or Steinway-designed.  Therefore, our goal is to purchase 28 more pianos to achieve All-Steinway status. 

Cost of 28 new pianos:
