Scholarship Description

In addition to holding auditions in Boston, Berklee travels to more than 50 cities throughout the United States, Europe, Asia, and South America in search of talented artists who are pursuing a college education in music, theater, or dance. The college also hosts teaching and performance programs across the United States and the world, including in Los Angeles, Puerto Rico, Ireland, Italy, and Japan, at various times throughout the year. Students may be selected to receive scholarships based upon their performance during these programs.

All entering undergraduate and graduate students are automatically considered for merit-based scholarships as part of the admissions process when applying to the College, Conservatory, and Berklee NYC. Berklee Valencia graduate applicants submit a scholarship application within their admissions application portal. Berklee College of Music students also have the opportunity to submit materials within their admissions application to have their songwriting and composition abilities considered. Undergraduate scholarships are awarded for up to eight total semesters of enrollment to cover a single major, and are automatically renewed each semester provided students are meeting the terms and conditions of their scholarship.
