The LACC Music Academy Herb Alpert Scholarship

The $10.1 million endowment from The Herb Alpert Foundation to the LACC Music Department is the largest-ever private donation to a California community college. All qualified full-time music majors are part of the HAMC Music Academy and receive Herb Alpert Music Scholarships for two years of study. The scholarships are available for in-state, non-resident, and international students who receive a tuition waiver based on the current in-state student tuition fee. In addition, students who audition and are accepted into the HAMC Applied Music Program receive scholarships for private lessons.

The Fall 2023 priority deadline is Friday, June 30. Start your application at the link below.
