The Berklee Lollapalooza Scholarship Auditions

lollapalooza logoIf you attended Lollapalooza this past summer you may have seen Julia Easterlin perform on the Google+ Stage.  Julia is a product of the Berklee College of Music and she landed the slot at Lollapalooza by attending Berklee and lending a hand in kicking off the partnership between one of the most recognizable music festivals and notable music schools.   Each year Lollapalooza will donate a full tuition scholarship to one lucky musician who auditions for Berklee and then is accepted. The musician must be an outstanding one from the United States that demonstrates a financial need.   If having fully paid tuition wasn’t a big enough prize, the lucky student also gets to perform on one of the Lollapalooza stages next year.

The process isn’t an easy one. All the candidates for the Berklee Lollapalooza Endowed Scholarship must apply to the college and then participate in the live auditions as well as an interview at one of the Berklee auditions being held around the country.  Today and tomorrow mark the beginning of the auditions in Lollapalooza’s stomping ground, Chicago.

Berklee College spends 175 days per year on the road holding auditions to attract talent to the school.  They also visit more than 50 sites around the world and it’s all supported by a $25 million scholarship fund.

If you are interested in applying to The Berklee College of Music, head over here.  The application deadline for Fall 2012 is January 15.

The first recipient will be chosen in March and announced at Lollapalooza 2012.
