Whitlock Music Scholarship
The John B. Whitlock Music Education Scholarship Fund is established at the University of New Hampshire with gifts from the family and friends of John B. Whitlock. The purpose of the John B. Whitlock Music Education Scholarship Fund is to provide an annual scholarship to an outstanding music major who plans a career in music education. If there are no eligible students planning a career in music education in any given year, the award will be given to an outstanding music major. The chair of the Music Department, in consultation with appropriate members of the Department Faculty, shall be responsible for the selection of scholarship recipients.
