The David Glaser Songwriting Scholarship
Ellis’ friend David Glaser (1956-2018) was an award-winning songwriter and instrumentalist, who recorded and played live music from the 70s forward, either as a solo artist, a band member, or a sideman. David was adored by thousands and is intensely missed by his family, friends and fans. He was in love with beautiful songs, had begun teaching songwriting in schools just prior to his death, and believed deeply in the transformative power of creativity. As of 2019 this scholarship will be named, with love, in David’s honor. To learn more about David, visit Facebook. To buy his music, visit CD Baby (all proceeds go to David's daughter Greta).
Three scholarships (of $500 each) will help defray costs for three students who need it. Winners will still need to cover what the Guest House charges for room and food ($812 for a private room, $616 for a shared room).
Write an essay of 300-400 words describing why the Retreat is important to you and how the scholarship would help you to attend. There is no charge to apply. Email your essay NO LATER THAN MAY 20, 2019 to:
