Each year Canisius College offers a number of vocal music scholarships to incoming freshman who demonstrate musical proficiency and a desire to participate in one of the college’s performing ensembles. These awards cover $2,000 in annual tuition costs and are renewable for up to four years, resulting in up to $8,000 in total tuition reduction over an undergraduate career.

I’m writing today to invite you to share this information with any students that you know who may be planning to enter Canisius College next year.   Although Canisius now offers both a major (BA-Music) and minor in music, it is not necessary for scholarship recipients to be enrolled in either program. He or she needs only to participate in one of the college’s music ensembles.

Follow these two links for an information sheet and scholarship application blank.  Please feel free to print and duplicate both and distribute them to your students. The deadline for submission of the application form is January 15th. Supporting materials can follow after that deadline.

Please feel free to call or write with any additional questions. You may also contact Jane Cary, Director of Music, at 888-2536. Best wishes for continued success in your work!

  • 10 From them came forth a sinful root, Antiochus Epiphanes, son of Antiochus the king; he had been a hostage in Rome. He began to reign in the one hundred and thirty-seventh year of the kingdom of the Greeks. 11 In those days lawless men came forth from Israel, and misled many, saying, "Let us go and make a covenant with the Gentiles round about us, for since we separated from them many evils have come upon us." 12 This proposal pleased them, 13 and some of the people eagerly went to the king. He authorized them to observe the ordinances of the Gentiles. 14 So they built a gymnasium in Jerusalem, according to Gentile custom, 15 and removed the marks of circumcision, and abandoned the holy covenant. They joined with the Gentiles and sold themselves to do evil. 41 Then the king wrote to his whole kingdom that all should be one people, 42 and that each should give up his customs. 43 All the Gentiles accepted the command of the king. Many even from Israel gladly adopted his religion; they sacrificed to idols and profaned the sabbath. 54 Now on the fifteenth day of Chislev, in the one hundred and forty-fifth year, they erected a desolating sacrilege upon the altar of burnt offering. They also built altars in the surrounding cities of Judah, 55 and burned incense at the doors of the houses and in the streets. 56 The books of the law which they found they tore to pieces and burned with fire. 57 Where the book of the covenant was found in the possession of any one, or if any one adhered to the law, the decree of the king condemned him to death. 62 But many in Israel stood firm and were resolved in their hearts not to eat unclean food. 63 They chose to die rather than to be defiled by food or to profane the holy covenant; and they did die.

  • 53 Hot indignation seizes me because of the wicked, who forsake thy law. 61 Though the cords of the wicked ensnare me, I do not forget thy law. 134 Redeem me from man's oppression, that I may keep thy precepts. 150 They draw near who persecute me with evil purpose; they are far from thy law. 155 Salvation is far from the wicked, for they do not seek thy statutes. 158 I look at the faithless with disgust, because they do not keep thy commands.

  • 35 As he drew near to Jericho, a blind man was sitting by the roadside begging; 36 and hearing a multitude going by, he inquired what this meant. 37 They told him, "Jesus of Nazareth is passing by." 38 And he cried, "Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!" 39 And those who were in front rebuked him, telling him to be silent; but he cried out all the more, "Son of David, have mercy on me!" 40 And Jesus stopped, and commanded him to be brought to him; and when he came near, he asked him, 41 "What do you want me to do for you?" He said, "Lord, let me receive my sight." 42 And Jesus said to him, "Receive your sight; your faith has made you well." 43 And immediately he received his sight and followed him, glorifying God; and all the people, when they saw it, gave praise to God.
