Robert & Susan Grossman and Ali Ryerson established this scholarship in 2020 to provide annual scholarships to a Bachelor of Music in Performance, Jazz Emphasis in the YSU Jazz Studies program in the Dana School of Music at Youngstown State University.  The purpose of this endowment is to perpetuate the legacy of the YSU Jazz Studies Program and pay tribute to our parents, brother and sister, Rose Marie (Ryerson) Grossman and Art Ryerson in appreciation for their lifelong support of our musical pursuits.
