Bruceallenfund.org website has been established to collect monies for such a scholarship fund. (A benefit show was presented at First Avenue nightclub, Minneapolis, MN Saturday, February 13, 2010 to honor Bruce's memory. Monies collected from the show will be used to establish the Fund.) All monies collected through the website and through donations received elsewhere will go towards the Fund.
Applicants to the Fund must be residents of the State of Minnesota. Students can be any age but must be pursuing a degree. Scholarship monies are available only for academically accredited schools and for the purpose of degree credits towards a diploma in art or music.
Submissions will include a completed Application Form and a one page essay describing the applicant's artistic and/or musical history and/or academic goals. Two letters of recommendation and a High School Transcript are required as well.
Applications will be considered by the Review Committee, which will award scholarships until the funds are depleted.
Submissions must be mailed to:
