ASU Music Student Wins Statewide Scholarship
Angelo State University music major Lynsey Gold has been awarded a Clara Freshhour Nelson Music Scholarship from the Texas Association of Music Schools (TAMS).
A clarinet student from Junction, Gold will receive $6,000 a year for four years, as long as she continues to meet eligibility criteria. She is one of only six scholarship recipients statewide in the TAMS’ Four-Year State University Division.
To qualify for the Nelson Scholarship, students must apply during the second semester of their freshman year and submit academic details, reference letters, a musical demonstration CD and an essay.
TAMS was founded in 1938 to advance the cause of music in higher education generally, and to improve the quality and program of the music education system in Texas through the promotion of cooperation among all colleges and universities and through the exercise of educational leadership.
