Emerson Harris Program for Private Study

Funded by the late Cherry L. Emerson, Jr. SM '41 in response to an appeal from Associate Provost Ellen T. Harris '49, Professor Emeritus of Music, the Emerson/Harris Program offers merit-based financial awards for private study in music to students of outstanding achievement on their instruments in classical, jazz or world music. Each academic year, the Emerson/Harris Program awards Scholarships and Fellowships to nearly fifty students who commit to a full year’s study and participate in the musical life of MIT. Private teacher selections, made in consultation with the music faculty, may include instructors from MIT staff and throughout Greater Boston.
