Tamburitzans Scholarship Program
Helping to Build the Tamburitzans...
Endowment means "to enrich." Endowment is a critical part of the fabric of every university, particularly a private school which does not rely on state and federal funding. Endowed scholarships are also critical to universities, for they provide funds in perpetuity.
Duquesne University has made scholarships a priority. For the Tamburitzans, they are a necessity. To attract talented student performers, we must offer attractive scholarship awards. Providing these awards for the entire ensemble (up to 40 performers) requires a sizable endowment. Thousands of Tamburitzans friends and fans have contributed over the years to strengthen the Tamburitzans scholarship program; your support is most welcome and needed.
Consider the following giving opportunities to help make a lasting impact on the future of the Tamburitzans Scholarship Program:
- Establish a Tamburitzans Endowed Scholarship at Duquesne. By creating a scholarship, you not only assist talented student performers—you can memorialize a loved one, honor someone special, or leave your own legacy.
- Contribute to an existing Tamburitzans Endowed Scholarship Fund. If you are not in a position to establish an endowment at this time, but still wish to contribute to the Tamburitzans Scholarship Program, your contribution can truly make a big difference.
- Contributions in any amount may be applied to the Tamburitzans Scholarship Endowment Fund. This is a general sustaining fund created to benefit Tamburitzans students.
