This year, for the first time at Lansing JazzFest, the JAMM Scholarship Quartet is made up in its entirety of JAMM Scholarship recipients: 2010 recipient, Alex Mejia on guitar; 2012 recipient, Noah Frankforter on trumpet; 2013 recipient, James Heinlein on bass; and 2014 recipient, Conor McCornack on drums. Conor will be a sophomore at East Lansing High School in the fall and is a student of Jeff Shoup.

The $500 annual scholarship winner is drawn at random from a pool of recommended high school students studying jazz, and is designated to fund summer study or private lessons.
