Scholarships & Planned Giving

In addition to the ongoing support provided by Dean’s Circle membership and Friends of  the Conservatory, there are many ways you can support our students and initiatives. To learn more about creating a scholarship, making a planned gift, endowing a faculty position, or underwriting our renowned Conservatory Performs series please speak with a member of our Advancement team. These are major gifts that transform performing arts experiences for Shenandoah University, Winchester, the region and beyond.

Shenandoah University Scholarship for Diversity & Inclusion

The Shenandoah University Scholarship for Diversity & Inclusion is established to strengthen and encourage the diversity of talent and perspectives at Shenandoah University, and to support the recruitment and retention of outstanding students from diverse backgrounds. This scholarship initiative targets and gives preference to students who belong to underrepresented and/or marginalized backgrounds as well as those who study in programs where there is a historic underrepresentation of diverse students.
