The scholarships are to aid 43 students, between 17 and 24 years old, accepted into universities who wish to pursue studies in Latin music and who face financial challenges, the foundation announced in a statement.
The Latin GRAMMY Cultural Foundation hopes that the financial aid will help support the next generation of musicians, who in turn will help Latin music thrive in global culture.

Three students will receive the Gifted Tuition Scholarships that will award $25,000 annually, a total of $100,000 that will be handed in a span of four years. There will also be a chance for 40 students to receive a one-time award of 10,000 for Fall 2019 and Spring 2020 semester.
To apply, students are asked to create audition videos, send two letters of recommendation and answer questions in form of an essay. Deadline to apply is April 10, 2019. For more information visit the Latin GRAMMY Cultural Foundation site. Questions can be answered at LGCF@grammy.com.
