BMI Foundation Announces Opening of 15th Annual John Lennon Scholarship Competition
The opening of the 15th annual John Lennon Scholarship program has been announced by the BMI Foundation, Inc. The 2012 program will award three scholarships to U.S. college student songwriters. Prizes totaling $20,000 will be given for the best original songs submitted to the competition.
Established by Yoko Ono in 1997 in conjunction with the BMI Foundation, these annual scholarships honor the memory of one of the preeminent songwriters of the 20th century, John Lennon. Made possible through generous donations from Ono with matching funds from Gibson Musical Instruments, the program has awarded more than $300,000 to young songwriters over the last 14 years.http://www.bmi.com/news/entry/555245
