Gary Pollard Memorial Scholarship:

The Gary Pollard Memorial Scholarship is presented by the Winnipeg Wind Ensemble as a tribute to one of the most caring and influential musicians in the ensemble’s history.  The scholarship will recognize a trumpet student from grades 7-12 who makes a strong contribution to his/her school community, has demonstrated consistent musical achievement, and has had a significant impact on their peers, ensembles and overall program.  


Manitoba band directors are invited to submit a nomination by providing a supporting letter (up to 500 words), which indicates how the applicant has met the eligibility criteria.  The $500.00 award is to be used for private instruction, camp tuition, or a purpose as proposed by the student and approved by the awards committee.  


The scholarship will be presented at the final Winnipeg Wind Ensemble performance of the season.

The due date for this year's scholarship is April 19th, 2024. Please submit your letter of application to our Education and Outreach Coordinator Bobbie Fast using the email address:
