The Bryce and Jonelle Jordan Scholarship Fund was established in 1981 to support
undergraduate music students at UTD. Bryce Jordan, flutist and musicologist, was
the university’s first permanent president and later became president of Penn
State University. The scholarships have since been extended , with Dr. Jordan’s
approval, to provide financial support for undergraduate students in any of the creative
and performing arts.
The School of Arts and Humanities awards these scholarships in the Art and Performance
and Art and Technology areas, which includes music, theatre, dance, creative writing,
digital media and the visual arts. Scholarships are awarded at the $500 and $1,000
levels to students who are, or will be, full-time students. Although preference is
given to students who major in the arts, the scholarships also may be awarded to
students who minor in the arts or can demonstrate the ability to make an outstanding
contribution to the arts program. For more information on the Jordan scholarships,
