The Grammy Foundation, based in Santa Monica, announced Monday that 173 students -- 167 from the U.S. and six from abroad -- have been selected as participants in the 10th annual Grammy Camp program.
The camps will be held at USC and in Nashville, Tenn., St. Paul, Minnesota, and Brooklyn, New York.
"The Grammy Foundation's Grammy Camp has become our signature program that provides young people with an extraordinarily in-depth experience, giving them a genuine sense of what it's like to have a career in the music industry," said Neil Portnow, President/CEO of The Recording Academy and the Grammy Foundation.
"Each and every Grammy Camper benefits from this program and takes with them valuable lessons learned as they continue their music journeys."
Applications for Grammy Camp 2015 are online at grammyintheschools.com.
The application deadline is March 31. Financial aid is available and approximately 80 percent of Grammy Camp participants who have applied for financial aid have received assistance.
