About the OHS Biggs Scholars Program
Welcome to a new era of this important program now offering comprehensive career development generating well-rounded organ advocates! The purpose of OHS Biggs Scholars Program is to equip and educate the next generation of organ performers, researchers, and builders to appreciate and preserve the historic value of the organ.
This highly selective scholarship is awarded annually to a class of four (4) scholars for a three (3) year term. Generous financial support will cover attendance at Summer Festivals, including registration, travel, lodging, and meals. In addition, various lectures, workshops, and masterclasses will be scheduled throughout the year to support our Scholars in their development.
And, perhaps most significantly, the select group of OHS Scholars will have the support of the expanding OHS community from performance, research, and internship opportunities at a host of venues, institutions, and companies. We look forward to having you as part of our family!
This program originated in 1978 and has provided over 200 scholarships to offer financial assistance to attend annual conventions and complimentary membership to the Organ Historical Society.

Looking to get involved? Please send an email to the committee to let us know how you would like to help our OHS Scholars. Maybe you have a recital series that could host a Scholar, or a historic instrument that they would benefit from knowing? Or perhaps you want to share your knowledge and experience with this next generation? Whatever you’re thinking, we’d love hearing from you!
