Northwest Catholic endowed their longstanding Damuth Music Scholarship fund this month with a generous gift of $150,000 from the Dr. R. Lee Damuth and Adeline J. Damuth Foundation. 

Since 2014, incoming freshmen who are both stellar students and stand-out musicians have had the opportunity to win a Damuth Music Scholarship. Each year approximately five freshmen are granted the $2,000 per year scholarship for all four years they attend Northwest Catholic.

The nine national standards for music education, according to both the National Association for Music Education (NAfME)* and the Archdiocese of Hartford Fine Arts Curriculum/Music Achievement Standards, are incorporated into Northwest Catholic’s music curriculum and expectations for scholarship recipients. Instruments eligible for the scholarship include violin, viola, cello, bass, piccolo, flute, oboe, bassoon, clarinet, bass clarinet, alto saxophone, tenor saxophone, baritone saxophone, trumpet, French horn, trombone, euphonium, tuba, piano, percussion, string bass, harp, or voice.

Those who receive the scholarship have already shown outstanding dedication to music in addition to academic success. To continue to receive the yearly scholarship, they must maintain an A average in an honors-level ensemble class and maintain an overall 3.0 GPA. Recipients also must play in a jazz group (instrument-dependent) and take a music theory class during their high school career. Northwest Catholic’s promise to educate the whole person includes a top-of-class fine and performing arts curriculum along with extensive co-curricular arts opportunities. 

Students are encouraged to apply for the Damuth Music Scholarship by visiting northwestcatholic.org/damuth and submitting required materials by January 31, 2020. Also required are a personal statement, letter of recommendation, and live audition. Recipients will be notified by mail by March 31, 2020.

Northwest Catholic is grateful for this generous gift of $150,000 from the Dr. R. Lee and Adeline J. Damuth Foundation, which will continue to give access to deserving students and strengthen the outstanding music program at the school.
