Thanks, Jorja for finding this --
Jean and Timothy Schmit, parents of Berklee student Ben Schmit, have established the Timothy B. Schmit Endowed Scholarship for students studying the bass guitar.
Outstanding continuing students with demonstrated financial need will be nominated by the Bass Department, with a preference for bassists who also sing. Bassist Hayley Batt, from Farnham, England, is its first recipient.
Bass guitarist and singer Timothy Schmit is best-known for his work as a member of the The Eagles, who have won a total of six GRAMMYs and been inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Their recordings Greatest Hits and Hotel California are both ranked among the top 20 most-selling albums of all time.
