The Jazz Education Network (JEN) has announced the establishment of the Jamey Aebersold Endowed Scholarship, which will be awarded annually at the JEN Conference to a college student exhibiting genuine passion and dedication to jazz education. The scholarship is named after respected and acclaimed jazz educator Jamey Aebersold, whose more than fifty years of pioneering jazz education have impacted an immeasurable number of aspiring jazz players, students and teachers worldwide.
