In order to perpetuate the Gustafsons’ legacy of artistry in the service of God’s glory, the Dwight and Gwen Gustafson Music Scholarship Endowment was established to provide scholarships to students enrolled in the BJU Division of Music academic programs and/or ensembles who demonstrate both a strong musical potential and a commitment to glorifying the Lord and serving others through music. Scholarship funds provide recipients the opportunity to study with BJU’s highly qualified Christian faculty as they develop their vision for pursuing and sharing the beauty of God through musical excellence and redemptive artistry in church ministries, schools, and other vocational careers and communities around the world.

This scholarship, established by Mr. Tom Stitt and Mrs. Jan Kissimon in memory of Tom’s mother, Mary Alice Stitt, is for financially needy students studying percussion, piano or strings in the Division of Music with a GPA of 3.0 or higher.
