GRAMMY Camp will be held in Nashville, Tenn., from June 9–13 at Belmont University; St. Paul, Minn., from June 13–21 at McNally Smith College of Music; Los Angeles from July 12–21 at the University of Southern California Thornton School of Music; and New York from Aug. 3–11 at Converse Rubber Tracks (in Brooklyn). Select career tracks, including Songwriting, Audio Engineering and Music Business, are offered in each location, with all tracks culminating in media projects, recordings, an open house, and/or performances.

"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."

"Ten years ago, when GRAMMY Camp began, we could not have imagined how this program would have grown and how the students who participate would have thrived from the experience," said Kristen Madsen, Senior Vice President of the GRAMMY Foundation. "The program and the campers have exceeded all of our expectations and we are looking forward to what the next decade will bring."

Applications for GRAMMY Camp 2015 are currently online at www.grammyintheschools.com and the deadline is March 31, 2015. Financial aid is available and approximately 80 percent of GRAMMY Camp participants who have applied for financial aid have received assistance.
