Fully Funded Berklee City Music Summer Scholarship

Berklee City Music offers two scholarships to attend Berklee programs. The City Music Summer Scholarship is a tuition scholarship to attend Berklee’s Aspire: Five-Week Music Performance Intensive. The City Music College Scholarship, available to eligible high-school seniors, is a partial- or full-tuition scholarship to Berklee College of Music; it’s a highly competitive merit- and need-based scholarship.

Since its inception, Berklee City Music has awarded scholarships to more than 1,900 students to attend the Five-Week program as well as hundreds of full- and partial-tuition Berklee College of Music scholarships.

Students in City Music have the opportunity to receive a full-tuition scholarship to Five-Week. This program allows students to immerse themselves in their chosen style and study with world-class faculty in a college setting.

Five-Week is the largest, most comprehensive summer music program available anywhere. With its variety of study and performance options, world-class Berklee faculty, visiting artists, and state-of-the-art facilities, Five-Week has become the premiere contemporary summer music program for aspiring musicians.
