The Marilyn and Ray Gindroz Foundation has been established to enrich lives and enhance education through travel in Europe and study of traditional architecture, urbanism, and music. The annual Gindroz Prize for Travel/Study in Europe will provide a $7500 stipend to support students of architecture and music pursuing study in European towns and cities. It recognizes the life-changing potential of becoming immersed in a culture, language, and environment that is different from one’s own. The prize emphasizes both intellectual and craft development.
Architecture students will produce hand drawings and analyses culminating in a lecture and exhibit. Music students will attend performances and seek performance experience or training, culminating in a lecture, composition, or recital when they return to campus.
Musicians are encouraged to experience the visual arts, especially the urban spaces of European cities, while architects are encouraged to attend musical performances. Students are required to present their work during the fall semester following their abroad experience
