Rock Hall announces new scholarship for Tri-C

Cleveland - The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame announced Saturday that a portion of the proceeds from the 2018 Inductions will go to establish a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Scholarship at Cuyahoga Community College.

It's a renewable, three-year scholarship that will provide financial help to two students.  

Any fulltime students enrolled in Creative Arts coursework, and who have a GPA of 2.5 or higher, can apply.

The recipients will be chosen by August 2018.

The award was announced by Rock Hall CEO Greg Harris and 2018 Inductee Richie Sambora(Bon Jovi).

Saturday was Celebration Day at the Rock Hall, featuring live music, film screenings, family activities, free admission and a performance by 2018 Inductee Richie Sambora and Orianthi. 

It was also an opportunity for fans to get their first look at the multimillion dollar transformation of the "visitor experience" at the music shrine.

The Hall also announced a gift to the Myers Student Emergency Fund at Tri-C.

It's a program that helps students "experiencing unforeseen financial challenges" that affect their ability to continue their studies.
