Frank Brown Foundation for Music scholarships essay submissions open

Posted

The Frank Brown Foundation for Music (501c3) is awarding scholarships to college-bound Baldwin County high school seniors with an interest in music. Interested students should submit an essay describing their current career plans and the role music plays in their lives. Essays will be reviewed by a committee from the Foundation Board of Directors and winners will be determined.
The scholarships will be worth $1,500. Essay submission deadline is April 15. Scholarships are planned to be presented in May, during the respective school’s senior awards ceremonies.
For more information, contact Foundation Director Andy Haynes at andy@fbisf.com or 251-978-6213.
The Foundation endeavors “to reach into schools to enrich lives and encourage creativity through music.” The “In Schools Outreach Program” is offered at no cost to schools, and brings professional songwriters in to speak to students of all ages. The presentations combine performances with an interactive question and answer segment where students can ask about the process of songwriting. Presentations include general instruction on the subject while the instructor addresses various aspects of songwriting as a career.
Interested schools should contact program Director Karen Reynolds at fbisfoutreach@gmail.com or Haynes at andy@fbisf.com.
The Frank Brown Foundation for Music aims “to bring the authors of original music out of the shadows and into the spotlight.” To that end, the 38-year-old nationally recognized Frank Brown International Songwriters’ Festival is produced each year in November. Thousands of visitors from all over the United States and several foreign countries “come to see and hear over 200 Grammy Award winning and up and coming songwriters perform their songs and tell the stories of how the songs came to exist” during the ten-day festival.
Festival performances take place at multiple venues throughout Gulf Shores, Orange Beach and Perdido Key/Pensacola, Florida. 2022 festival dates are Nov. 3 - 13. For more information, visit www/frankbrownsongwriters.com.
