About The Scholarship

Professor Moore and Phanedela

The Foote Scholar will be chosen on the basis of talent, career potential, scholarship and need by the Foote Advisory Board with recommendations from the SMU Voice Faculty.

The recipient is announced at the annual Foote Scholarship Benefit. The specific scholarship amount will be determined annually by the Foote Advisory Board and will be not less than $1,000 each academic year. The award will be given in two equal amounts at the beginning of each semester of enrollment with evidence of singer’s academic standing.

In addition to the Foote Memorial Scholarship Award, the Foote Foundation awards significant financial assistance throughout the year to singers — regardless of gender, race or ethnicity — for excellence in singing.
