The Dunitz Scholarship is an annual scholarship provided by Jeri Dunitz for Newton Senior High School band students to be used toward summer music camps.

Both Jeri and her late husband have been ardent band supporters for years. Up to $3,000( is allotted each year and students must send in an application, essay and two letters of recommendation. Applications are chosen based upon character, musicianship, and dedication to the Newton Band Program. 

This is a fantastic resource that provides students with an opportunity to better themselves and the band program.  

This years Dunitz Music Scholarship winners are Kate Wyre, Northwest Missouri State University Music Camp; Katherine Thorpe, Simpson College Jazz Camp; Amber Sorenson, Dorian Summer Music Camp; and Alexis Luetters, Dorian Summer Music Camp.

Then Newton Band Program would like to thank Mrs. Jeri Dunitz for her generosity and overwhelming support.
