The Latin Grammy Cultural Foundation, which provides support to Latin students at Berklee College of Music, has announced that it is accepting applications for the Carlos Vives Scholarship.

The Colombian superstar has partnered with the Latin Grammy program to provide financial support to an accepted student at Berklee College toward a bachelor’s degree, worth up to $200,000. "The ability to support a new generation of Latin musicians brings me great joy," said the 11-time Latin Grammy and two-time Grammy winner in a press statement.

Vives now joins the list of previous superstars, such as  Enrique Iglesias, Juan Luis Guerra and Miguel Bosé, who also provided college-level scholarships for Latin music students. For more information on how to apply, please visit

"Carlos Vives not only represents musical excellence and achievement, but the equally significant qualities of generosity and altruism," said Manolo Diaz, the senior vice president of the Latin Grammy Cultural Foundation, adding “His legacy will also include changing the life of the scholarship recipient."
