Arthur J. Mirabile Scholarship
The Arthur J. Mirabile Award is established at the University of New Hampshire Foundation through the generosity of the friends, family, colleagues, students of Arthur J. Mirabile, and a challenge grant from the Frederick Smyth Institute of Music ("Smyth Trust"). The purpose of the Arthur J. Mirabile Award is to provide an annual scholarship to a student enrolled full-time at the University who had previously attended the Summer Youth Music School and has the potential to be or is a high level contributor to a musical ensemble(s) at UNH. It is intended that the award recipient be a musician of the highest caliber. Preference is given to students who are from the greater Manchester area. The recipient need not be a music major. A committee made up of faculty from the Department of Music shall be responsible for the selection of the award recipient(s).
Arthur Mirabile was a music educator in the Manchester School System beginning in 1961 where he was responsible for the vocal and instrumental programs. He graduated in 1959 from UNH, receiving a Bachelor of Arts Degree with a concentration in music composition. He received his Masters in Music Education from the University of Connecticut in 1970.
