Elizabeth Schaefer Tenreiro Scholarship Fund
Created in 1987, this scholarship was established by Charles D. Schaefer in honor of his daughter, Elizabeth Schaefer Tenreiro, who graduated from Indiana University Jacobs School of Music in 1987. According to Mr. Schaefer, he established the fund in order to express his "appreciation for the excellent instruction which my daughter received during her undergraduate years." Mr. Schaefer endowed the fund with the hope that other young singers will have the opportunity to receive the caliber of education that his daughter enjoyed while she was a student at Indiana University.
This scholarship is awarded annually to full-time opera students at IU Jacobs School of Music.
