The First Ella Fitzgerald Memorial Scholar in Jazz Studies at CSUN has been named!

Trumpeter Michael Gutierrez is starting his freshman year at California State University, Northridge as CSUN's first Ella Fitzgerald Memorial Scholar in Jazz Studies.

The honor includes a $5,000 scholarship for the 17-year-old Clovis native from the Ella Fitzgerald Charitable Foundation, which was founded by the legendary "First Lady of Song" as a way to use the fruits of her success to help others. Gutierrez will receive $5,000 each academic year for two years, with the opportunity to reapply at the end of that term.

"It's really quite an honor to be the first Ella Fitzgerald Scholarship recipient," Gutierrez said. "It means a lot less stress and makes life a lot easier as I start out in college."
