The David Glaser Songwriting Scholarships
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.

NESR 7 SCHOLARSHIP DETAILS:
We are thrilled to be able to award at least two tuition Scholarships (of $625 each) to attend NESR 7. They will help Students defray the cost of attending NESR. Scholarship recipients will still need to cover the cost of lodging (a shared room at the Guest House), food, facility fees, and taxes—which comes to $750 total.
