Jazz Scholarship Available for 2021-22 school year! Apply NOW!

Jazz Outreach Initiative is honored to announce a college jazz scholarship opportunity open now for applications. Through the generosity of the Carl and Nicholas Soranno families and in honor of the late Richard Soranno, we’re offering the Richard Salvatore Soranno Memorial Scholarship for Jazz through the Public Education Foundation. You can learn more about Richard, a wonderfully gifted Las Vegas Academy student musician who passed this last spring, by reading our blog article HERE.

This will be JOI’s second awarding of this scholarship, the first having been awarded to Ilai Macaggi of Green Valley High School, currently attending The Julliard School. Applicants do not have to be participants in any of JOI’s programs. If you’re interested in applying and want to learn about important deadlines and requirements, visit the PEF listing at
