Bob Soulliere Music Achievement Scholarship

Michelle Soulliere


This year, I started South Windsor School of Music’s Bob Soulliere Music Achievement Scholarship with the goals of paying reparations to BIPOC and supporting dedicated high-achieving students who are benefiting from music lessons but struggling in a number of other ways. These goals are in line with South Windsor School of Music’s Inclusion and Diversity Statement.

"Our goals are to pay reparations to BIPOC and support dedicated high-achieving Music students."

The Bob Soulliere Music Achievement Scholarship has no deadline dates and no awarding schedule. Recipients are selected as the need becomes apparent. This is a private award - recipients are not publicly announced by the school and their teachers are not notified. Recipients are more than welcome to share the news if they'd like, and add the award to their list of achievements as they see fit. Funds have no cash value, and are automatically added as a credit to the recipient's school account.

In a continuance of tradition, the scholarship was named in honour of our school's founder, Bob Soulliere. Bob’s father Nelson was also a local business owner with a scholarship fund in his name, still awarded today to young people starting business degrees at the University of Windsor. 

Since its conception in April 2021, the Bob Soulliere Music Achievement Scholarship has had 9 unique donors and has awarded 3 outstanding BIPOC students with music lessons for a combined length of 4 months.

The school recognizes that this fund alone is a small gesture, and there is a lot more work to do.
