NYU Steinhardt and Songwriters Hall of Fame Team up to Offer 2013 Songwriting Scholarships


The Songwriters Hall of Fame (SHOF) and NYU Steinhardt will provide funds to support six songwriting scholars.

The Songwriters Hall of Fame (SHOF), in collaboration with the NYU Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development, announced today it will provide funds to support the second cohort of SHOF Songwriting Scholars. Generous grants from the SHOF and performing rights organizations ASCAP, BMI, and SESAC will make it possible for six students to receive full scholarships to the Summer Songwriters Workshop at NYU Steinhardt. The eight-day songwriting summer intensive begins June 17, 2013.

“We are delighted to continue our scholarship program, in partnership with NYU Steinhardt,” said SHOF President and CEO Linda Moran. “The workshop offers a unique and very rare opportunity for students to work closely with some of today’s most accomplished and respected songwriters. The scholars program is a natural extension of our growing collaboration with NYU Steinhardt, which we began two years ago with the creation of the Songwriters Hall of Fame Master Sessions.”

The NYU Summer Songwriters Workshop will provide one-on-one sessions with faculty, detailed presentations on a wide variety of skills, tools, and strategies essential for working songwriters, interaction with renowned practitioners of the art of songwriting, and in-depth master classes with prominent members of the music community.
