Year-End Scholarship Drive

What are your fondest memories of the Minuteman Band?

MICCA, Allentown, or BOA?

SK6ERS Music Video?

Band Camp? Bus 2? Gong Shows?

Banned in Boston? Chapel Parties?

The Macy’s or Rose Parades?

Let’s build the Band Alumni Scholarship endowment to help MAKE IT CRAZY for future members of the Minuteman Marching Band to make their own fondest memories!

The Band Alumni Scholarship Fund recognizes band members who go above and beyond for the UMMB, for themselves, and for each other.

“The band gave me a focal point; it became my little village. Everything I did emanated from that.”
—  Dotty Hayes ’72, ’76 MBA, percussionist and scholarship donor

The Band Alumni Scholarship Fund was established by band members of the Class of 1965 to establish a link between alumni and current band members and to recognize outstanding participation in the band. This scholarship is available to current band members who demonstrate the excellence, energy, and enthusiasm that defines the Minuteman Marching Band.
