Dick Kegerreis (1928-2002) contributed enormously to ACDA through his service as editor of the Eastern Division's Troubadour, as national coordinator of newsletter editors, and as editor of New York's state newsletter Choral Cues. To honor these contributions, as well as his life as a dedicated choral conductor and mentor, the Board of the Eastern Division in 2002 established the Richard I. Kegerreis ACDA Eastern Division Conference Scholarships.
The goal of these Collegiate scholarships is to
support ACDA Conference participation and service by college students. A
maximum of eight (8) scholarships will be awarded for the Eastern
Division in Providence, Rhode Island, each in the amount of $250.
We encourage all college students to apply for the Kegerreis Collegiate Scholarships. Applications must be completed no later than November 16, 2011. The scholarship application form is located here:
Kegerreis Collegiate Scholarship Form
Recipients of the Kegerreis Collegiate Scholarships will be notified by e-mail before the early application deadline for the conference. All recipients will need to register for the conference according to normal procedures. They will then receive their scholarship checks at the conference registration desk in Providence.
Kegerreis Honor Choir scholarships are available to members of the 2012 Elementary, Junior High, High School, and Latino Repertoire choirs. The purpose of these scholarships is to encourage talented young students who might not be able to participate in an honor choir because of financial considerations. The awards for 2012 will pay for the Honor Choir Registration ($250 for Elementary and Junior High; $275 for High School and Latino Repertoire).
Funding for the Richard Kegerreis Scholarships will come from ACDA Eastern Division funds, supplemented by donations by any persons wishing to honor Richard Kegerreis.
Donations are tax-deductible, and Mrs. Kegerreis will be informed of those donating to this fund as a memorial to her husband.
