The Jazz Lovers’ and More Jazz Clubs of the Villages, Florida, announce the 12th annual Bob Washington Jazz Scholarship Award Program competition for jazz instrumentalists and vocalists who are high school seniors, college freshmen, or sophomores. We are keenly interested in those potential applicants who are determined to advance their contribution to the preservation and evolution of what is generally accepted, and defined, as “straight ahead” jazz music.


This year’s program will consist of six awards, totaling $8,250 as follows:


First place:                     $ 2,500

Second place:                $ 2,000

Third place:                    $ 1,500

Fourth place:                 $ 1,000

Fifth place:                     $    750

Sixth place:                    $    500


The funds will be disbursed directly to the school or equipment provider as warranted after proper documentation has been completed. (Please see attachment.) The finals will be held on Sunday, April  24, 2022 at the Laurel Manor Recreation Center in The Villages. A rhythm section of professional musicians will be provided. Finalists  will only be selected from CD’s to be submitted by the applicants. While there are no specifications as to the diversity of the recorded material to be submitted, applicants should be aware that at least two selections of different tempos are desired. In addition, applications must be supplemented by at least one “Letter of Reference” from a credible individual attesting to the applicant’s musicianship, character, and seriousness of the intention to the continuation of jazz studies. The references may be forwarded separately. Applications must be received by midnight March 19, 2022. All applications become the property of The Jazz Lovers' Club of The Villages, Inc.
