We founded the Shepherd Society in 1975 to channel financial support to students from a robust community of music lovers. For many young musicians, tuition costs and future debt are deciding factors in considering whether to continue honing their craft. Shepherd Society-funded scholarships play a critical role in attracting today’s most talented young musicians to study at Rice. The Shepherd Society offers multiple levels of membership, each with an array of benefits to enjoy. All members are invited to member events, which include concerts, operas, and festivities.
