The George N. Parks Scholarship Fund was established by the UMass Band Alumni Network in 2021 to permanently honor GNP with financial awards to exceptional bandos.
Beginning in 2022, a scholarship of $1,000 will be awarded to a member of the Minuteman Band who strives to be the very best for themselves and the UMMB.
One $1,000 award is given as a merit award chosen by the band staff. There is no application for this scholarship. The recipient will be announced at Band Banquet.
