Fish’s Jazz Scholarship

In 1991, vocalist Ronnie Wells (pictured) formed the Fish Middleton Jazz Scholarship (FMJS) in memory of jazz radio programmer Elmore “Fish” Middleton. The FMJS’s fund-raising event, the East Coast Jazz Festival, enters its 12th year in 2003, and the details of the fest’s popular scholarship competition are now available.

“The Fish Middleton Jazz Scholarship Fund, Inc. (FMJS), a 501(c)(3) organization, is now accepting applications for scholarships for the year 2003. FMJS’s primary focus is to assist emerging jazz musicians (vocalists and instrumentalists) in their development by granting scholarships for performance and educational purposes,” says the application guidelines, which can be viewed in full, along with printable applications, here: http://www.fmjseastcoastjazz.com/html/education.html
