From a Pearl Corporation Press Release:
Pearl Corporation announces the opening of its third annual college scholarship, “Musicians Making A Difference”, which will award two $5,000 scholarships totaling $10,000 to high school musicians who have demonstrated the ability to impact change in themselves, their community, and those around them.
“I am beyond grateful to have been selected a recipient of the 2022 Musicians Making a Difference Scholarship. The scholarship has been invaluable in paying for my college and conservatory education and has allowed me to focus on becoming a better musician and person. Thank you so much to Pearl Drums for supporting musicians who are passionate about giving back to their community!” said Amy Hwang, 2022 Scholarship recipient.
A diverse panel of Pearl staff and artists will select recipients based on a student’s contributions to their community and not their playing or vocal ability. The scholarship’s objective is to reward and inspire the youth who will shape tomorrow.
This year’s application deadline is April 15, 2023.
