Scholarship Overview

The Frank and Carol Pinkerton Orchestral String Instrument Scholarship is for students who display talent, dedication to the pursuit of a career in orchestral instruction and a serious commitment to an advanced music education study program in a recognized music school, college, or university. Students of violin, viola, cello and string bass who are admitted to a music education program are eligible to apply. It is the donor’s intent that students who receive this scholarship will teach orchestra in Alaska schools and promote the same dedication and legacy to music education as that of the Pinkertons. Preference will be given to applicants who attend an Alaskan university and intend on becoming orchestral instructors in Alaska, OR attend a university outside of Alaska but intend to come to Alaska to be orchestral instructors OR are enrolled in an accredited music education program outside Alaska and intend to be orchestral instructors.
