'Glee' Stars Fund Arts Scholarship in Honor of Cory Monteith

To honor their co-star who died earlier this month, "" stars (Sue), (Blaine), (Tina), and (Mike) funded a scholarship in the name of the late actor. The arts scholarship will be awarded through the Dance Educators of America, a non-profit professional dance organization.

"Thanks, Cory, we love you," Adam Shankman said after announcing the scholarship. The "" judge, who has directed several episodes of Monteith's hit TV series, broke the heartwarming news during the gala for dance charity Dizzy Feet Foundation.

Monteith died from the lethal combination of heroin and alcohol on July 13 at the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel while in Vancouver visiting his mom. The "Glee" cast was shocked over the news of his untimely death, most especially her co-star and real-life girlfriend who was reportedly "devastated beyond belief" upon learning about Monteith's demise.

For the first time, more than two weeks after the tragic loss, Michele finally broke her silence with a tweet on Monday. "Thank you all for helping me through this time with your enormous love & support. Cory will forever be in my heart," the actress posted on Twitter along with a photo of herself and Monteith in a loving embrace while on the beach.

Monteith's character on "Glee", Finn, will not be re-cast but instead will be killed off, with changes to the storyline causing some slight delay in the filming of the series' forthcoming fifth season.
