Ed Sargent Entrepreneurship Scholarship

UTM Music Alumnus Ed Sargent was 4 days from his last final exam in May of 1982 when offered the opportunity of a lifetime for a chance to go out on the road with acclaimed jazz trumpeter Maynard Ferguson. More than 30 years later, Ed has now worked with some of the biggest names in the Music Business. Ed is currently the Tour Manager for Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, handling the day to day operations for all headline and touring events.


The band is gearing up for a big Summer run across the outdoor shed venues with 80’s icons Tesla and Styx. While serving the Blackhearts in the Tour Manager capacity, the band has also toured with the Foo Fighters, the Who, Heart, Aerosmith, Cheap Trick, Boston, Def Leppard, Cyndi Lauper and a host of other acts… Ed’s love for UTM Music and the influential role it has played in his life is obvious. This scholarship in Ed’s name will be presented to a student who needs financial assistance in pursuing a valuable opportunity in the field of music business and/or the music industry at large. Up to $500 will be awarded. The amount is subject to the need and quality of the proposal made by the applicant. Students are encouraged to seek internship opportunities and other “hands-on” experiences for this scholarship.


Music and Academic Awards may be combined.
