A. R. Rahman Scholarship at Berklee College of Music
Berklee was founded on the revolutionary principle that the best way to prepare students for careers in music is through the study and practice of contemporary music.
For more than half a century, the college has evolved to reflect the state of the art of music and the music business, leading the way with the world’s first baccalaureate studies in jazz, rock, electric guitar, film scoring, songwriting, turntables, electronic production, and more than a dozen other genres and fields of study.
With a diverse and talented student body representing 96 countries, and alumni who have collectively won more than 250 Grammys and Latin Grammys, Berklee is the world's premier learning lab for the music of today.
In honor of Rahman’s new relationship with Berklee, the college established the A. R. Rahman Scholarship to help bring a student or students from India to Berklee. The A.R. Rahman Scholarship is a merit-based scholarship available to an Indian student or students in the 2016 entering undergraduate class.
- The scholarship is available only to a student holding Indian citizenship.
- The scholarship is applicable for the undergraduate program.
The audition and interview process, a required part of the admission to the college, doubles as a scholarship screening process. For more information on applying, to Berklee and to find out when representatives of Berklee's admissions team will be in your area, visit Berklee.edu/admissions.
