Scholarship in Memory of Local Photographer Returns to CMU

Robert Grant Memorial Scholarship
Robert Grant

Following a short hiatus, the Robert “Bob” Grant Memorial Scholarship, an award for aspiring musicians, will return to Colorado Mesa University for the Fall 2017 semester.

For several years this scholarship provided tuition and fees for full-time students pursuing music degrees at CMU. To date, two outstanding music educators have graduated from the program under this scholarship.

The award has been dormant for the last few years. As of yesterday, April 18, 2017, the scholarship was reactivated.

Whereas the award previously offered a full-tuition and fees scholarship, it now provides funds for the independent study. It is exclusive to students majoring in music at CMU and is specific to those whose primary instruments are members of the string family.

Also new to the award’s criteria, the recipients of the award will be determined by CMU professor Max McFarland, a local musician and relative of Robert Grant.

Grant was a lifelong resident of Western Colorado, minus the three years he spent in Asia during World War II. He was born and raised in the Clifton area and spent the last 30 years of his life residing on Little Park Road in Grand Junction. His daughter and grandchildren are active members of Western Colorado’s musical community.

To apply for the Robert “Bob” Grant Memorial Scholarship, contact the Colorado Mesa University Foundation.
