Erroll Garner–Martha Glaser Endowed Scholarship

Berklee College of Music and the Garner-Glaser Foundation, Inc. are pleased to announce the establishment of the Erroll Garner–Martha Glaser Endowed Scholarship, which will award merit-based partial-tuition scholarships to Berklee students in partnership with the Berklee Institute of Jazz and Gender Justice.
The scholarship was established through the generosity of the Garner-Glaser Foundation, Inc. in memory of legendary jazz artist and composer Erroll Garner and his manager, business partner, and producer Martha Glaser. The Garner-Glaser Foundation, Inc. is a private foundation that provides grants to individuals and nonprofit organizations. Recent beneficiaries of the foundation include Harlem School of the Arts; Newport Festival Foundation in Rhode Island; Sistas' Place in Brooklyn, New York; and the Afro-American Music Institute (AAMI) in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.   
“It is an honor to be a part of the establishment of this scholarship, named after two titanic influences in the jazz world,” said Terri Lyne Carrington, founder and artistic director of the Berklee Institute of Jazz and Gender Justice. “Erroll Garner and Martha Glaser exemplified excellence in their work and artistry; I look forward to honoring their legacy of excellence through this scholarship here at Berklee.”
We are now seeking matching contributions for this scholarship, which was established thanks a generous gift from the Garner-Glaser Foundation, Inc.
