Help the next generation of scholars and musicians

When you give to the department of music, your gift makes an immediate impact.

  • Scholarships enable our talented young musicians to work less and practice more! Many of our students are working 35 hours a week to meet expenses, and this leaves them not enough time to practice and truly develop their talents.
  • $1,500 enables our UMBC Jazz Ensemble to attend a competition.
  • $500-$5,000 enables a masterclass by a visiting musician, or to create a residency experience for a week.
  • $250-$1,000 enables a needy student to purchase books, or to provide emergency assistance with tuition shortfalls.
  • $500 enables a senior preparing his/her recital to hire a pianist, and to rehearse effectively for this important career moment .

Whatever the size of your gift, thank you for joining our work. You can feel confident knowing that 100% of your gift will go to support the groundbreaking and life-changing work of the department of music. Every donor makes a difference on campus and throughout the broader Baltimore community. Most importantly, every gift makes a difference to our students. We are grateful to have you with us!

All contributions raised are administered by the UMBC Foundation for the benefit of UMBC.
