MUSICIANS INSTITUTE Announces Full Ride Scholarship Competition
Posted by Michael Mueller on November 25, 2009 at 3:53 PM
Students and potential students are invited to submit recordings via the contest's web site. After preliminary screening is complete, finalists will be flown by MI to Hollywood where they will perform live in the school's main Concert Hall before a panel of top industry professionals. The grand prize winner will receive a full tuition scholarship to MI beginning in Spring 2010, as well as up to $10,000 in living expenses. The first and second runners-up will receive full and partial tuition scholarships, respectively.
Describing the motivation behind this new scholarship opportunity, MI's Director of Admissions Jonathan Wilder said, "When the economy is in turmoil, it's tough to afford an education, but it's also the time when you need it the most. We want to extend a hand to help at least a few talented and highly motivated artists turn their passion for music into a profession, as well as to let aspiring performers across the country know about MI's unique educational opportunities. The Full Ride competition is a chance for us to contact and engage with musicians who are ready to take the next big step forward in their education and their career."
