The ISB Al Fisher Scholarship Grant is offered to bass students between the ages of 16 and 25 on the date the grant is awarded. The grant may be used for any purpose related to furthering the recipient's education and musical development.

The recipient of The ISB Al Fisher Scholarship Grant Scholarship will be currently enrolled in an educational institution, studying music with bass as the recipient's primary instrument.

The $5,000 USD scholarship grant is made possible by a generous bequest from the estate of longtime ISB member Al Fisher (1932-2022), who played for years with the Evanston Symphony Orchestra. Al gave recitals across the Midwest and eastern U.S., including a solo recital at Carnegie Hall in 1973. He released a pioneering solo bass album, Al Fisher Plays Bass, in 1974.

The deadline to apply is January 31, 2024. Click HERE for the application.
