Vans, the original action sports footwear and apparel brand, and Berklee College of Music, the world’s leading college of contemporary music, are proud to announce the founding of the Vans Berklee Off The Wall Scholarship — a four-year award covering full tuition, room and board. The scholarship will be awarded annually to a talented musician from the U.S. This is the first educational initiative of its kind for Vans, a brand rich in music culture that supports creative musicians and has deep roots in genres ranging from punk and metal to indie rock and hip hop.
The first Vans Berklee Off The Wall Scholar will begin at the college in the fall of 2014. Recipients will be chosen through Berklee’s auditions and interviews held in cities around the world. Upcoming audition sites include Boston (Feb. 15, 22, March 1, 8), Chicago (Feb. 14-16), Dallas (Feb. 20-21), Los Angeles (Feb. 20-22), Miami (Feb. 21-23), New York (Feb. 20-22), Philadelphia (Feb. 28-March 2), and Seattle (Feb. 26-27).
