Student Spring Award Winners

Each spring semester, division deans, department chairs, assistant chairs, faculty, and staff nominate those students whom they feel best embody the musical and academic qualities we seek to promote within the four instructional divisions of the college.

These awards are the most prestigious the college offers, given that nominations are made by faculty within the student’s area of specialization. Each nomination is an endorsement of that student’s potential to become a leader in tomorrow’s music industry by many of those Berklee faculty who are leaders within the industry today. On behalf of the entire college community, congratulations to you, our distinguished students, in what is certain to be only one of your many outstanding achievements in the years to come. We wish you continued success.
