About the Ron W. Ianni Memorial Scholarship in Performance
The competitors for the Ron W. Ianni Memorial Scholarship in Performance were invited based on their outstanding grades in the December performance juries. The $500 annual award is open only to full-time students enrolled in a music degree program. This scholarship was established by Mina Grossman-Ianni and the School of Music in 2005 to honour the late president of the University of Windsor. Jurors assess the finalists and the winner of the scholarship is announced at the conclusion of the concert.
