The Zawinul Foundation offers the following awards:
The “Z” Award
Each year, this award is given to one music student from Austria and one music student from the United States for demonstrating exceptional musical talent and passion. Each first place “Z” Award winner gets to participate in our annul international music exchange program. The Austrian first place winner gets to visit Los Angeles for two weeks to take personalized music courses and visit historical and cultural sites; the American first place winner gets to do the same in Vienna. Both trips are fully paid for by the Foundation; airfare, housing, meals, music courses and recreational trips.
