The Nashville Songwriting Scholarship

The Nashville Songwriting Scholarship

The Nashville Songwriting Scholarship is open to all aspiring country music songwriters nationwide. The annual competition consists of creating the best original song in any one of several select song categories.

Eligible candidates must be full-time or part-time students attending a U.S. college or university. They must be between the ages of 17-24. One scholarship will be awarded to the best original song in one of the following categories: Americana, blues, bluegrass, contemporary Christian, country, folk, and roots.
Applicants must submit original work only which can be from one individual or a joint or co-written song. Entries must be submitted as a MP3 or MP4a file; lyrics must be submitted as a PDF. Only one entry per person is allowed.

The scholarship is sponsored by the BMI Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to fostering music education and performance. The non-profit is located in New York and is supported by donations from songwriters, composers, and publishers, BMI employees, and members of the public with a strong interest in music.

The deadline for this scholarship is usually in FEBRUARY of each year, and the award amount is usually $5,000.

About Mastering You

"Mastering You" is about helping African American's to see their value in this world. I post only positive stories and information about what African American's have contributed to society in the past and currently. I don't post anything about Sports, Entertainment, Religion, or Politics. I also don't post anything that has a negative spin. While I am aware that there are negative things happening all over the world and that most people focus on the above four topics when it comes to African American's that is not my goal. If all you heard was negativity about any race that's all you will come to expect from them and everything else will be out of the norm. My goal is to show everyone that the negativity is often out of the norm, or at best they are equal to the positive. Just like every other race.
