The Gregg Allman Estate and Belmont University have announced the creation of the Gregg Allman Endowed Scholarship for students in Belmont’s Curb College of Entertainment and Music Business.
Endowed posthumously, the scholarship honors Allman’s Nashville heritage and continues his legacy by supporting music business and entertainment education. It will specifically support students within Belmont’s Curb College of Entertainment and Music Business. Before his death, Allman created two similar scholarship funds at the University of Georgia and Syracuse University.

“The Allman Family is proud of the newly-established Belmont University scholarship made in Gregg Allman’s name and memory. We hope these future assets will go towards helping up and coming musicians pave the way to achieving their dreams. Our beloved father would be thrilled with this endeavor,” shares Allman’s son Devon Allman.
“Gregg was, without a doubt, a rock and roll pioneer and we are grateful for his legacy to live on at Belmont University. Through Gregg’s estate and his team’s generosity, more students will have the opportunity to study and pursue successful careers in the entertainment and music business,” adds Dr. Sarita Stewart, Interim Dean of Curb College.
