About the Scholarship Fund
The William Warfield Scholarship Fund was formed in 1977 to provide financial aid to talented and deserving students who attend the Eastman School of Music. Applicants must be students of voice, and although not required, preferably from families of modest means. The Scholarship Fund encourages minority students to apply. Students must also maintain at least a “B” grade point average.
Our Mission
