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

  • Providing financial means for students to attain success in the field of vocal music. (Very often it is lack of money that stands between a talented student's hopes for success and the realization of his/her dream)
  • Spreading the William Warfield success story, which demonstrated that those who pursue their education with commitment can succeed and achieve their goals.
  • The Fund earnestly solicits donations from the community of Rochester, the home town of it's namesake, as well as nationally and internationally. The scholarship fund is staffed by volunteers and has no paid personnel.  Donors are assured each gift has a direct and positive impact in a student's career and future success.
