The Tamburitzans has recently created TWO new scholarships: "The Dancer Scholarship" and "The Musician/Vocalist Scholarship." Two major gifts of $10,000 have already made "The Dancer Scholarship" possible! However, for decades there has been ‘friendly rivalry' between Tammie dancers and musicians - as to who "contributed the most to the show!" It was felt there could be a ‘healthy' way to raise funds to award a musician or vocalist for remarkable presentation of the music and songs of our folklore heritages. Therefore, "The Musician/Vocalist Scholarship" has been initiated as a ‘challenge scholarship' to its "Dancer" counterpart!
$50,000 for EACH scholarship must be raised over the next five years in order to endow them. Only upon fulfillment can the interest benefit a Tamburitzans' student.
As of today the scholarship levels are:
If you are planning to make a contribution to the Duquesne University Tamburitzans, please consider placing your gift into one of these new scholarship funds. No gift is too small. You will be supporting and sustaining the Tamburitzans and acknowledging the hard work and dedication that all dancers, musicians and vocalists take pride in as performers.
