New application deadline for 2020 Scholarship Programs of the Latin GRAMMY Cultural Foundation

Given the outbreak of the COVID-19 and its devastating impact in the lives of music makers worldwide, the Latin GRAMMY Cultural Foundation® is extending the deadline for all its 2020 scholarship programs. This includes:

  • Julio Iglesias Scholarship
  • Gifted Tuition Scholarships
  • Tuition Assistance Scholarships

The new deadline to apply for all three scholarships is April 13, 2020 (previously April 10, 2020)

Please note the Scholarship Committee will evaluate your video submission based solely on your musical performance (tone, rhythm, technique, musicianship and originality) NOT on video production.

Music has the ability to unify us. We encourage you to use music to spread positive energy and messages of hope during a time when we need it most.

Good luck to all the applicants.
