SCHOLARSHIPS

Dr. Inez Stewart Bull was a woman of many interests and talents. Chief among her passions were music, music education and Norwegian-American relations. Dr. Bull passed her love for music to thousands of young people both in schools where she taught and through private lessons. These lessons were often free or at reduced rates for young people who showed promise but were of limited means. The Foundation approves annual grants and scholarship awards to music departments and nonprofit groups.
