The program needs to be endorsed by an instructor and by the principal of the school.  The selected program may be of any instrument, technology, genre or level of expertise – the primary selection criteria will be based upon the submitted information, including an essay/program statement prepared by student(s) in the program.

Since 2005, hundreds of musicians have received support from the scholarships and grants of the Swift Fund for the Arts. We think this is an appropriate legacy.

This nonprofit organization was formed to promote scholarship in music,humanities and the arts. The 501 (c) (3) Non profit organization draws upon the artistic resources of the Swift Family, particularly the musical compositions of Richard G. Swift as well as the writings of Dorothy Z. Swift. The Swift Fund for the Arts also provides a resource for access to these and other artistic works. In addition to issuance of scholarships, funding of lectures and concerts, the organization is dedicated to management of artistic resources.
