The Arnold Larson Scholarship was created in memory of Mr. Arnold E. Larson, former Band Director at Mandan High School in the 1950's & 1960's. The scholarship fund was made possible through donations from a former student of Mr. Larson's and Mandan High graduate.
The Arnold Larson Scholarship is intended to support training and education in music, especially instrumental music in honor of Mr. Larson's teaching career.
Two scholarships are available, the Arnold E. Larson Undergraduate Scholarship and the Arnold E. Larson Graduate Scholarship, allowing the Foundation to support two students each year through this fund.
Mandan High School seniors are able to apply for this scholarship through the Mandan Public Schools Foundation for Education scholarship application process that takes place each spring.
Graduate students are able to apply for this scholarship in writing using the application guidelines below.
