The Grammy U™ Professional Development Scholarships are generously sponsored by The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce Community Foundation, and are provided to encourage the professional growth of currently enrolled students in any Certificate, AA or Bachelor’s Program at Musicians Institute.

One scholarship per currently enrolled MI student applicant (eleven total) was awarded (based on a written essay submission) in the form of a paid membership in The Recording Academy® GRAMMY U™ program, giving each awardee the opportunity to attend events and special programs in all areas of the music industry. As entry-level members of The Recording Academy®, the students will have access to the industry and its high level artists, songwriters, musicians, producers, remixers, art directors and executives, as well as fellow students from other LA area colleges.

Everyone at MI congratulates the winners of this very prestigious award!

Special thanks to our longtime community partner, The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce Community Foundation for generously sponsoring this scholarship, which helps to provide talented students at Musicians Institute with the support, tools, recognition and professional development they need to launch successful and creative careers in the music industry.
