About the Scholarship

The Bruce Brown Memorial Scholarship was founded in November, 2011 in honor of Bruce Coleman Brown. Bruce's love and passion for music, and particularly, the French horn, inspired his wife, Debbie and three sons: Aaron, Brandon and Stephen to start this scholarship in his honor. The scholarship is awarded in the amount of $500 and is available to one French horn player who is a high school senior, graduating in the Clear Creek, Friendswood or Pasadena School Districts. Donations toward this scholarship are accepted by mail and are completely applied toward the awarded amount that the chosen candidate will receive.
