There are undeniable limitations to language but sometimes we can't find the right words to express our feelings or thoughts. Music is often a tool used by people to express emotions that are difficult to convey through conventional speech.

For centuries, Black people have suffered immensely at the hands of slavery, discrimination, and social inequities. Music is such a therapeutic outlet for those who have suffered to revel in their experiences while nourishing their souls with sound.

The Music and Me Scholarship exists to support Black students who can also resonate with the comfort that only music can bring. 

Whether you play music or simply love to listen to artists, this scholarship is for you! To apply, you must write about a song that’s special to you and why.
