Bluebird Fall Scholarships for 2023
Audrey A. Lundeen Award and 6 Other Scholarships

The Audrey A. Lundeen Bluebird Scholarship is intended for current high school seniors who plan to pursue their interests in dance, theater, or music (vocal or instrumental) in college or some other advanced arts training beyond high school. The student does not need to plan to major in dance, theater, or music but must plan to do advanced study/training to keep the arts a part of their lives. A $2,500 scholarship will be awarded to one senior to use for his/her advanced training in the arts.

In addition to the Audrey Lundeen Award, the Bluebird Foundation also gives away six additional awards during their Fall Scholarship season. These include:

  • Nels Hursh Culinary Award ($500)
  • Jim Putnam Award – Cloquet Eagles Club Aerie 1163 ($500)
  • Cloquet Eagles Club Aerie 1163 Award ($500)
  • Patrick Perfetti Music Excellence Award ($500)
  • Charles (Chuck) Main Percussion Award ($500)
  • Zack Ross Memorial Award sponsored by Born too Late ($500)

Along with the completed application form, applicants must also include a letter of recommendation from a teacher or coach familiar with the student’s artistic achievements and interests. Recommendations may also be submitted online or mailed to the address noted.

Students, teachers, or coaches should call 218-727-1177 with questions about the Bluebird Foundation and its scholarship program.
