Administrative History

The Indiana Scholarship Fund for the Aspen Music School was founded in 1959 in Indianapolis by women interested in providing opportunities for Indiana musicians. A non-profit organization affiliated with the Music Associates of Aspen, Inc., this group provided scholarships for gifted Indiana music students to attend the world-renowned Aspen Music School. The group conducted an annual benefit concert each fall to raise funds for the scholarships and featured many prominent artists. The competition was open to residents of Indiana between the ages of 16 and 25 (16 and 27 for voice) and competitive auditions were conducted in the late fall. Scholarship winners would then get the opportunity to attend Aspen during the following summer. The organization disbanded in 2000.
