The Thom Milmoe Memorial Scholarship is awarded to a musician or would-be musician attending the Blue Ridge Old Time Music Week for the first time. It is a full scholarship funded by Thom Milmoe’s surviving spouse, Alice Milmoe.
At age 42, Thom took the challenge of learning to play an instrument relatively late in life. Alice Milmoe celebrates her late husband’s memory by encouraging others to experience the joy that creating music can bring, “even if it’s not particularly good music.”
Scholarship Criteria: A preference is given to beginning musicians, age 35 or older, who have financial need.
