The winner will receive $35,000 in tuition assistance.

Hollywood, CA (June 5, 2015) -- Musicians Institute, the College of Contemporary Music in Hollywood, has announced the brand new Joe Bonamassa Torch Bearer Scholarship, offering $35,000 in tuition credit to support the educational growth of a newly enrolling MI Guitar Program student. Sponsored by Bonamassa’s own non-profit Keeping The Blues Alive Foundation, the scholarship will be awarded to a student who demonstrates overall outstanding musicianship, advanced skills, and the potential for developing a unique sound on the guitar.

“Sometimes you are fortunate enough that an opportunity presents itself to change someone else's life,” said Joe Bonamassa. “Musicians Institute has great programs—not for just guitar, but for other instruments and music industry subjects. When it all boils down, sometimes a kid can only afford either the tuition or the room and board, not to mention guitar strings and picks. So we have taken the tuition off the table and are sending a kid to school for a year. To whoever gets the scholarship, I hope that he or she uses it to change the trajectory of their lives! Good luck and keep playing loud!”
