Winchester Wood Memorial Scholarship in Music
This scholarship was established by friends and family in memory of Winchester R. Wood, '30 (MS, 1938). Mr. Wood worked for the General Electric Company, was an avid skier with an interest in all sports, and enjoyed music, having played the trumpet in the UNH Band. He enjoyed and maintained friendships with people from all walks of life. At least one scholarship will be awarded each year to a student who is a member of any of the University bands (presently the University of New Hampshire Symphonic Wind Ensemble, University Band and University of New Hampshire Marching Band). Preference shall be given to students in any of the University bands who are pursuing music as an avocation, but the music major who is a member of one of the bands, and who shows exceptional talent, industry and participation shall not be excluded. Recipients must be upperclass students with a grade-point average of at least 2.0. The scholarship shall be awarded based on need. Applications and recommendations for the scholarship must be made from the Music Department to the Financial Aid Office.
