Tourjée Alumni Scholarship Award
The Tourjée Alumni Scholarship Award was established in 1985 by NEC's Alumni Council, “to encourage graduate study at the alma mater, thus refining talent to its highest potential.” The first award was made in the spring of 1986.
This special prize towards first-year tuition is given to a graduating student or NEC alumna/us who plans to pursue further graduate work at NEC. Those who are applying for a master’s degree, graduate diploma, or doctorate degree are eligible for this scholarship. Holders of full-tuition scholarships or funding are ineligible for the Tourjée Alumni Scholarship Award.
The award is based on outstanding musicianship, scholarship, and enterprise. Equal weight is given to these characteristics. Recipients must also exhibit high potential for success in graduate study and in the music field. The award is based solely on merit and not upon financial need.

The Tourjée Alumni Scholarship Award Committee, comprised of Alumni Council members and chaired by Oliver Chamberlain '59, '64 M.M., reviews applications, interviews candidates, consults with faculty and administrative staff, and selects the best candidate. Once an award recipient is determined, s/he will be notified and presented the award at Commencement in May.
