Scholarship Accounts

The IHS has several "named" scholarship accounts as well as a general scholarship account. Money donated to the "named" accounts goes to the principal or to pay for the current year awards from the account. The interest is only used to pay awards for the scholarship account.

Donations to the general scholarship account are used to pay award amounts not covered by the "named" accounts and also to pay for the annual "Symposium Participant" awards.

You can make a donation to the following Scholarship Accounts at any time.

Walter Lawson Memorial Fund -  This fund was formed to honor and remember Walter Lawson, an Honorary Member  of the IHS and a member of the Advisory Council from 1977-1983. As well as performing professionally, Walter Lawson conducted research and development in instrument design and construction which led to several important acoustic and mechanical innovations of the horn. According to IHS policy, a "named" fund does not become permanent  and thus usable until the fund account reaches $5000. This account is still below the $5000 minimum required, so donations are welcomed to help achieve this goal. {easypaypal itemname=LawsonFund,itemnumber=LAWSON}
