NEW YORK >> Bruno Mars is expanding his support of a Grammy scholarship for high school students.

The five-time Grammy winner had lent financial support for a student from his native Hawaii to attend the Grammy Museum’s Grammy Camp since 2014 to honor his late mother. Now a student nationwide will be eligible, and Mars will cover the student’s tuition, housing and transportation. Mars will fund a student a year for five years.

Grammy Camp allows students to learn about the industry from professionals and has sessions in Los Angeles and Nashville, Tennessee.

The “24K Magic” singer — who is also a producer, songwriter and plays multiple instruments — expressed his gratitude to Grammy Camp. In a statement today he called it a “privilege” to be able to help students reach their musical dreams.

Mars’ other hits include “That’s What I Like” and “Uptown Funk.” He’s currently on a world tour.
