Josh recognized talent in others and through music and performances reimagined mod and psychedelic folk music and fluxus art by bringing out the best creativity in his co-conspirators in the underground and indie music scenes in Santa Cruz and San Francisco. Above all Josh cherished his family and friends, had a great reverence for Santa Cruz and for those he called his fellow travellers, ordinary people who use their talents to live the dream by following their hearts.

    The Josh Alper Marines scholarship celebrates students who demonstrate the independent DIY spirit; inspire others by being inclusive and community minded; have done projects (large or small, creative or practical, funny or serious, elegant or mind blowing) and or share values that celebrate life and beauty in others, cross language and cultural barriers; rally people together for a cause, purpose or fun; and are humane to others.

    The award is given yearly in the Spring quarter to 2 Stevenson students and one undergraduate from any other college for $4,700 each. Awardees must be in good academic standing and have financial need.
