Each year The Tamburitzans award scholarships to undergraduate students who perform with the ensemble. These are funded by donations to our endowment funds and through various fundraisers throughout the performance season.

Create your own named-endowed scholarship

The Tamburitzans have a wonderful community of supporters from alumni to family-members of performers and lovers of folk arts who want to support our students. Many of these supporters have created their own named-endowed scholarship fund. If you would like to create your own named-endowed scholarship, contact Alyssa Bushunow at (412) 224-2071 or email

In 2016, The Tamburitzans began to welcome student performers from universities throughout the city of Pittsburgh. In 2023, The Tamburitzans announced a new scholarship award for these students. The General Scholarship Fund is for our current student performers attending Pittsburgh-based Universities.
