Jacob Titus Youth Music Scholarships


Established by Tamara Titus and Lane Jacobs, the Jacob Titus Youth Music Scholarship honors the memory of their nephew Jacob Everett Titus. Jacob’s passion for music began with a year of guitar lessons. In the years that followed, he nurtured that passion as a self-taught musician and loved to play his guitar and sing for his family and friends.

The Jacob Titus Youth Music Scholarship will serve youth (17 and under) who have a passion for music by providing flexible music scholarships (up to $1,000 each) to assist with music-related expenses, including but not limited to: music lesson fees, musical instruments, tuition for music camp experiences or other music education expenses. Expenses must occur at least 30 days after the date application is received. The fund will award a total of up to $2,250 in music scholarships each year, as funds are available.
