The Albert and Elisabeth Swinchoski Music Scholarship Endowment

This endowment was created by the late Professor Emeritus Albert Swinchoski and his wife, Elisabeth in 2000.  Professor Swinchoski was on the JSC faculty from 1966 until his retirement in 1987 and played the violin in the Vermont Philharmonic for 20 years.  Mrs. Swinchoski also played the violin and taught social science and English at the high school level.  Donations in their memory added to the endowment.

The Swinchoski Music Scholarship is to encourage the study of traditional orchestral instruments, and goes each year to a full-time student majoring in music education, studying one of the traditional orchestra instruments, as judged by the music faculty as best qualified for the award.
