Los Angeles, California – Jun 2, 2021 – The Benjy Grinberg Scholarship program is now opening its doors for applicants for the academic year 2021-2022. Winning students will receive $1,000 financial assistance in the coming semester once announcements are made. The program also recently awarded two students for the academic year 2020-2021, namely Evan Cunningham from Marietta College, OH, and Shawana Yodice from Rowan University, NJ.
Getting a college degree is something that many of us have dreamed of or worked for. Pursuing one’s higher education goals is a great key towards career advancement, networking with other professionals, and opening doors of opportunity to reach one’s fullest potential. However, not all students have the financial resources to continue, much less even start going to college. In recent news by CNBC, a survey revealed that 56% of college students had to discontinue pursuing their degree post-pandemic, because of the exorbitant costs.
This grim reality is what inspired Benjy Grinberg to start his scholarship program. As a successful leader in the music industry, he understands the struggles one must go through to pursue one’s passion through formal education. The Benjy Grinberg Scholarship hopes to provide financial help for deserving students who wish to complete their college degrees.
To apply for the scholarship program, applicants must either be:
- Currently pursuing an undergraduate or graduate program in a U.S. college or university
- A high school senior currently accepted as a freshman in a U.S. college or university
All students who want to submit an application must also send in their details to the official scholarship website, including a 500-word essay with the following question prompt: “Many often find music comforting during difficult times. How has music played an impact on your life and educational journey?“
To qualify, entries must be submitted on or before April 1, 2022. Once all submissions are passed, winners will be announced shortly to be given a $1,000 grant in the coming semester.
The core mission Benjy Grinberg Scholarship is to create a positive impact on students by providing financial support. By easing the financial challenges that many college students face, the program strives to bring hope to individuals, allowing them to take another step closer to fulfilling their dreams.
