Buddy Tabor Scholarships- Setting Up

A group here in Juneau, Alaska, is cogitating setting up an annual music scholarship in the name of Buddy Tabor.

Buddy sometimes talked of it, although he would sometimes add wryly that it could be that the best advice one could give a budding musician would be to STOP, to save oneself the miseries of putting it out there.

That thought aside, how does one go about setting up a scholarship and maintaining it? What would it entail? Sending the person to music college? Funding music camps? Funding teachers? Funding an instrument?

Any thoughts?

Now come on, folkies! I can't be alone in thinking this is a good idea?

The word "scholarship" rather implies paying to help someone learn in college. Call it a "bursery" and it could include a wider range of stuff, like funding someone to do fieldwork, or rrunning educational programmes. I'd suggest that might make more sense than a strictly academic use.

You have to remember that this is the US, Kevin- "bursery" is not going to catch on. :)

So do you use "scholarship" to cover non-academic subsidies?

I suspect that we do, as in funding access to learning. I know that I have heard it used in connection with sending someone to music camps, either on the basis of financial need or of outstanding talent.

What does the FSGW/Getaway call their complimentary or reduced price participants?
