Administrative History

The Barlow Endowment for Music Composition (1984- ) administers composition competitions and aids the development of excellent composers.

Through the support of Milton and Gloria Barlow, Brigham Young University established the Barlow Endowment in 1984. The organization has three focuses to encourage the growth and development of composers: The Barlow International Competition, The Barlow Commissions, and the Barlow LDS Composer Grants. The disposition of funds is decided members of the board of directors and board of advisors. The Barlow International Organization offers substantial prizes annually to composers from all over the world, in various areas of music. The Barlow Commissions is intended to produce a new work annually, including composition and performance. The commission goes to cover both cost of the musicians and to compensate the composer. The LDS Composer Grants are to aid the educational costs of composers belonging to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
