It is through the generosity of local individuals, families, and businesses that we are able to offer more than 120 scholarship opportunities. In 2020, TFEC offered more than 120 scholarship opportunities and awarded over $1.3 million in scholarships to 403 local students alone through various scholarship funds administered by TFEC and through management agreements with the Samuel L. Abrams Foundation and the Leon Lowengard and Ray S. Shoemaker scholarships of BNY Mellon, N.A.

Whether honoring loved ones or providing for specific communities, each scholarship expresses a deep belief in the power of education to help today’s youth achieve their dreams.

"Our family decided that a good way to honor our son, Zachary, who we lost at 19 due to tragic circumstances, would be to establish a scholarship fund. We started the fund at TFEC for students who are adventurous in their musical journey, just as Zachary was."
