Music allows people access to a boundless and genuine expression of self, often succeeding where language fails. As people change over time, so have their modes of expression, and music is not an exception.
Everyone has unique life experiences, but music can often conjoin these experiences and offer deeper connections between seemingly different people. Music education and incentivizing ambitious musicians to continue pursuing their careers is important to the ever-changing music industry and strengthening profound demonstrations of self.
The Joe Bonamassa Music Studies Scholarship will support one aspiring musician in their musical studies and budding career.
The scholarship is open to high school seniors who plan to attend college in the fall of 2021 and to currently enrolled undergraduate and graduate school students. Students must have a minimum GPA of 3.0 and an interest in playing/creating music.
To apply, please write about your interest in music, while describing your need for the scholarship and your hopes for your musical career. Please also submit a short clip of you playing music.
