2019 Marilyn Mason Scholarship Application
The Marilyn Mason
Young Musician's Scholarship
The Ann Arbor Chapter of the American Guild of Organists has established a scholarship fund in honor of Professor Marilyn Mason in recognition of her 66 years on the faculty of the University of Michigan.
Each year one or more scholarships are awarded to a young person from southeast Michigan toward the cost of attending a summer Pipe Organ Encounter (POE) or a POE-Advanced or a POE-Technical sponsored by the American Guild of Organists in our region. These events includes lessons with renowned teachers, recitals by faculty and participants, workshops and visits to area pipe organs and organ builders.
For precise definitions of the three kinds of POE events and for information about this summer’s events consult the website of the American Guild of Organists: https://www.agohq.org/education/poe
