The Latin Grammy Cultural Foundation presented the Sofia Carson Scholarship during a special presentation with the star of Netflix's most recent hit in Miami.

Valentina García, a 19-year-old vocalist and student, was the recipient of the Prodigy Scholarship (Sofia Carson Scholarship), created eight years ago to support music education and Latin music genres, which offers resources of up to $200,000 and will allow the young Venezuelan artist to pursue a bachelor's degree at the Berklee College of Music in Boston, starting in the fall.

Garcia, who was selected by the Foundation's Scholarship Committee from a very competitive pool of hundreds of applicants from around the world, excitedly stated:

Together, Sofia Carson and the Latin GRAMMY Cultural Foundation have changed my life for the better. I am forever grateful for their generosity and the doors they have opened.

Since its creation, the Latin GRAMMY Cultural Foundation has allocated resources of more than $7.6 million for scholarships, grants, musical instruments, and educational events throughout the United States and Latin America.

“My journey is only beginning, as I bear witness to the impact the Foundation has made on the lives of Latin musicians around the world, I am determined to pay it forward and be a voice for those who are most in need,” added García.

From One Star to Another

For her part, the visibly moved singer and actress pointed out that it is a privilege to witness the transformative mission of the Latin GRAMMY Cultural Foundation, highlighting that it changes lives through music.

“It is my honor to partner with my Foundation family to present Valentina with the Prodigy Scholarship. She is an ever-deserving, brilliant young woman whose voice and talent awed us. Together, may we continue to amplify and lift powerful Latin voices, in every corner of our world,” highlighted Carson, who is also Global Ambassador of the Latin Grammy Cultural Foundation and United States ambassador for UNICEF.
