We are currently granting two $3500 awards, one for a graduate level student, and one for an undergrad.

The 2023 application will open in late 2022.

We typically conduct in-person judging on a Saturday in February with applicant rehearsals scheduled on the Friday before.  Applicants need to be enrolled in an organ or church music degree program and will need to submit a letter of nomination from organ or church music faculty at an accredited school.

Winners return to give a full concert and receive their reward later in the year.
