The Colburn-Pledge Music Scholarship provides college tuition assistance to young Texas string instrument players who are preparing for careers in classical music.

The scholarship awards are limited to the amount of the annual tuition to be charged by the school, college, university, or music teacher of the recipient’s choice, not to exceed $3,000 per recipient.

The scholarship was formerly associated under the auspices of The Colburn-Pledge Music Scholarship Foundation from 1985 to 2021, and now currently resides under the management of Musical Bridges Around the World. The previously-named foundation was formed by John Pledge with proceeds from the estates of his sister, Genevieve Pledge, and of Lois Colburn, both former members of the San Antonio Symphony, for the purpose of offering tuition aid to string players residing in Texas who are preparing for careers in classical music.

Applicants for financial aid must be music students pursuing the studies of a bowed string instrument (specifically violin, viola, cello, or double bass) in classical music at any nationally recognized music school, college, or university, or be studying with any nationally recognized music teacher, and have the intention of becoming a professional performing musician.

Applicants must be bona fide residents of the state of Texas on the date of making application and for a period of at least six (6) months prior thereto, or prior to having entered a music school, college, or university, if attending an out-of-state institution at the time of making such application.
