Named in honor of the legendary musician and pioneer of American jazz, The Duke Ellington Scholarship at FAME Center is dedicated to upholding his legacy of innovation, excellence, and inclusivity in the arts. We believe that every child deserves the chance to explore their artistic potential and pursue their passions.


Thanks to the generosity of FAME Center partners, and their continuing contribution to this fund, we are able to provide financial-aid scholarships and merit scholarships to students as they pursue their journey in the arts.
