Lambert Creates Belmont Scholarship for Women, Hits Stage With Three Alumna

Miranda-Lambert-club-3rd-&-Lindsley-nashvilleMiranda Lambert has established a scholarship for outstanding women at Belmont University in Nashville, Tenn.

The Miranda Lambert Women Creators Fund will provide over $40,000 in scholarship funds to a female student majoring in music business, songwriting or entertainment industry studies enrolled for the 2016/2017 academic year.

As previously reported, tonight (July 28), Lambert will perform a sold out, one-off acoustic club show–aside from her Roadside Bars and Pink Guitars Tour–in support of the fund at Nashville’s 3rd & Lindsley. Writer pals Natalie Hemby (Belmont grad) and Jessi Alexander will join Lambert when she hits the stage with current tourmates RaeLynn and additional Belmont grads Clare Dunn and Courtney Cole.

“I am so excited to establish this scholarship fund,” said Lambert. “To encourage and empower women to achieve their goals is why I am supporting outstanding women who want to pursue their dreams in the music industry.”

“Throughout her career Miranda Lambert has been a faithful and loyal supporter of women songwriters and artists, and her music has served to inspire and to empower,” said Doug Howard, dean of Belmont’s Curb College. “And now, with the creation of her scholarship fund, Miranda will directly impact the education and opportunities of young women creators as they prepare for a career in the music industry. We are truly grateful for this generous gift and for the vision of its wonderful purpose.”
