Win Scholarship Money to Indiana University at the NHDI State Contest!

January 19, 2012

Hot from the Development Office:

The Cole Porter
Scholarship for Indiana Musical Heritage

Indiana?s past is filled with the
stories of musical legends. From the jazz clubs of old Indiana Avenue to the
contributions of greats like Cole Porter and Hoagy Carmichael, Indiana?s
singers, songwriters and composers have made incredible contributions to the
American music scene. Named after one of Indiana?s foremost composers, the Cole
Porter Scholarship for Indiana Musical Heritage will recognize an outstanding
senior category project at the state level in the
National History Day in Indiana competition
which explores Cole Porter and his impact on American music. Projects can
explore any number of topics surrounding Cole Porter his life, music and
influence on other musicians and composers. One award will be given to a high
school senior participating in one of the following categories: paper, exhibit,
performance, documentary or website. Only one award will be given during the
2012 competition.

The Cole Porter Scholarship for Indiana
Musical Heritage is open only to high school juniors and seniors. In 2012, the recipient
will be awarded a $1,000 scholarship to be applied toward his or her first
year of tuition at Indiana University. The recipient must attend Indiana
University in the fall of 2012 to receive the award.

Note that this scholarship is only available to 11th and 12th grade students. Projects must relate to Cole Porter insome way and must compete at the state contest to be eligible. Qualifying candidates for the scholarship award will be judged on their project and a short essay which will be due on the registration due date for the state contest, April 6, 2012. Good luck, students!

Matt Durrett is coordinator, National History Day in Indiana. Usually laconic and reserved, he has recently acquired the nickname ÒThe Quiet StormÓ around the office for his rare yet tempest-like outbursts.
