BMC x Amazon scholarships 2021

The Recording Academy’s Black Music Collective and Amazon Music are working together to bring scholarships to a new generation of music industry power players. 


Three students attending historically Black colleges and universities will receive a $10,000 scholarship. The scholarship recipients will also participate in a two-week, immersive rotation program with Amazon Music department leads. This award is available to any future music creators, recording professionals and executives. 


In addition, the BMC and Amazon Music will award two HBCUs $10,000 grants each for equipment for their music programs.
