The ASCAP Foundation Boosey & Hawkes Young Composer Award Honoring Aaron Copland

This scholarship is presented each year to a graduating senior at Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music and Art in New York City. The recipient is selected by the music faculty for promise in music composition. The award is funded by an endowment established jointly by ASCAP and Boosey & Hawkes, Aaron Copland's publisher. Mr. Copland was a distinguished member of ASCAP for over 40 years. Among his many wonderful compositions are Fanfare for the Common Man, Appalachian Spring and the ballet Billy the Kid.
