This campaign ended on October 31, 2023, but you can still make a gift to Berklee by clicking here!

Berklee's Armenian Scholarship Fund was founded in 2017 with the mission of raising scholarship funds for talented young musicians who are financially and academically deserving, possess a broad and meaningful understanding of Armenian history and culture, and have the potential to make a significant contribution to society through music. Your support will help us secure funding for the 2023 scholarship recipient who will attend Berklee's Aspire: Five-Week Music Performance Intensive next year.

The power of music is undeniable - it is an innovator, a true change agent, a tool that binds humanity. With this scholarship, we will champion cultural innovation by providing opportunities to future generations of Armenian musicians who have voices the world needs to hear.

With time, we aim to establish a lasting undergraduate Armenian student presence at Berklee College of Music and to create a bridge between Berklee and Armenia, which, in turn, will create opportunities for Armenian stories to be told to the widest audiences.
