Desautels scholar reflects on how U of M rejuvenated his passion for music
Stuart Sladden is well aware of the difference financial support can make in creating a life in music.
“The week before classes started, I found out I’d be receiving a $10,000 Desautels Scholarship, over two years,” Sladden says. “I remember sitting there gobsmacked. My wife and I had just moved here; we were trying to figure out how we could pay for tuition and buy a house. It took away so much pressure.”
