Berklee College of Music, the world’s leading college of contemporary music, and Lollapalooza Chile and Lollapalooza Brazil, one of the premier music festivals in the world, announce the launch of a scholarship to be awarded by Berklee to one outstanding musician from Chile and another from Brazil.
