Raitt-Wilson Music Scholarship
The Raitt-Wilson Music Scholarship is established at the University of New Hampshire through the generosity of Lorraine Raitt Kimball of Derry, New Hampshire. Mrs. Kimball received a bachelors degree in French from UNH in 1935 and a masters degree in English in 1936. She was a piano teacher in the Derry public schools and after her retirement continued her interest in teaching piano through private lessons to many local students. The purpose of the Raitt-Wilson Music Scholarship is to provide financial support to undergraduate students from New Hampshire with a major field of study in music. Preference will be given to students concentrating on piano as their primary instrument. Awards from the fund will be made on the basis of financial need. The award is renewable to a recipient or recipients throughout their undergraduate matriculation as long as the award criteria continues to be met. The Fund will be administered by the Chair of the Department of Music. Recipients of the Raitt-Wilson Music Scholarship will be made aware of the source of aid. The name of each recipient together with a brief biographical sketch will be provided to Lorraine Raitt Kimball during her lifetime and to another person/persons she may designate thereafter, by the Chair of the Department of Music.
