Lewis Nash Scholarship Endowment

Learn more about your impact

Jazz, at its heart, is born of African American inspiration and innovation. In a time when our country is experiencing one of the farthest-reaching civil rights movements in history, grappling with its past and present racial inequalities, the Lewis Nash Scholarship was established to create a sustainable resource to support underrepresented students who possess the talent and interest in contributing to the evolution of this American art form. Our students and faculty further the interests of the civil rights movement by sustaining the dialogue between people of all races and ethnicities which has been inherent to the culture of jazz for so long. Your gift provides critical financial support to these students, enabling them to complete their studies without worrying about debt.

  • More students succeed. ASU ranks #1 among the state’s public universities for its 86% first-year retention rate thanks in part to donor-funded student success initiatives.
  • And donors helped ASU offer more than 4,500 hours of free tutoring.

I believe ASU is a major life force in our community and I want to do my part to help it thrive."
