Carroll has announced the creation of two new scholarships for students studying music at the university.
The Frances Green MacAllister Endowed Scholarship Fund has been established through a generous gift of $500,000 from Pershing E. MacAllister ’40 in memory of his late wife. And the Elizabeth-Anne Bullock Endowed Scholarship Fund has been established by a gift of $378,000 from the estate of Ms. Bullock, who was a friend of the university. Bullock attended Carroll in the early 1950s and had a keen interest in music, playing the piano, organ and French horn.
These scholarships will be awarded through an audition process to students who are majoring in music, beginning in the fall of 2019. Auditions will be open to all students within the major.
The endowed scholarship gift establishes a permanent, ongoing fund from which annual awards may be made, creating a memorial that lives on in perpetuity.
“These gifts for endowment will help continue the strong legacy of our arts heritage for generations to come,” noted Stephen Kuhn, vice president of institutional advancement. The gifts will help the university maintain a robust music program.
