AIM offers $100k worth of Future Sounds scholarships
The Australian Institute of Music (AIM) has launched Future Sounds scholarships to find the next generation of music industry leaders, innovators and creators.
The key areas are innovation, indigenous, songwriting, performance, and new sounds in music.
Each recipient receives a scholarship contribution up to the value of $20,000 to study an accredited course at AIM’s campus in Sydney or Melbourne in 2021.
Chairman of AIM and music industry veteran, Ed St John, said, “The Australian music industry has experienced a challenging year in 2020, especially the live music sector, but nothing stops the forward momentum of creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship.
“This is an exciting opportunity to offer our courses to the most deserving candidates and we look forward to reviewing the submissions.”
Deadline is December 15, and applicants must be aged 25 or under on December 31, 2020.
Submissions will be reviewed by a panel of music academics and industry experts.
