The Foundation seeks to identify the world's most gifted emerging artists as early as possible in their career cycles to provide maximum benefits for their future. Anum-Dorhuso was selected as one of the youngest Apogee Merit Scholars ever at the age of 10. As a result of his outstanding series of performances at Apogee's Music Festival later in the same year, he was re-selected by the festival jury to continue as an Apogee Merit Scholar for another full term.
