Applications for a scholarship to the University of Westminster’s MA in Music Business Management, established in memory of late British music executive Richard Antwi, are now open for 2018/2019.
The initiative was launched last year after the untimely death of Antwi—a widely-respected music manager, lawyer and entrepreneur who played a pivotal role in the careers of Wretch 32, Lethal Bizzle, Daley, Wiley, Tinie Tempah and others.
Those interested in applying are invited to a workshop that takes place on March 3rd from 1pm to 3pm at The University of Westminster’s Cavendish Campus in London.
The Richard Antwi Scholarship has been established by Friends Of Richard Antwi (a loose collective of friends) and the University of Westminster in memory of Antwi, with the intention of continuing his legacy.
It provides full support to a student on the MA in Music Business Management course, covering tuition fees, a contribution to living expenses and includes an opportunity to undertake work experience.
Talent from the UK B.A.M.E. community and those in financial need are encouraged to apply.
Applicants don’t need to be graduates, but should have a passion for music and an entrepreneurial spirit.
Thanks to support from Island Records, Young Turks / XL Recordings, Universal Music Group, Sony Music, Warner Music, Sony/ATV Music Publishing and Clintons law firm, the scholarship will continue running annually until at least 2023.
