Amelia Gormley


For bassist Amelia Gormley, getting accepted to Berklee was a dream come true, but financing her education has been challenging. “I wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for the scholarship and financial aid I’ve received. It’s only because of private donations made by friends of the Berklee community that I’ll be able to complete my degree,” says Gormley, whose band just released its first full-length album and is planning a tour next year. “Every donation, big and small, helps make Berklee the amazing place it is, and gives students like me the chance to experience it despite financial hardship.”
