The NAMM Foundation has announced that the deadline for submitting an application for a NAMM Foundation Music Products Industry Scholarship or President’s Innovation Award is September 30th. Up until that date, college students pursuing careers in the music products industry can submit their application at the NAMM Foundation website. Students may only apply for one programme.
NAMM Foundation Music Products Industry Scholarships offer tuition scholarships of $2,500 to $5,000 to support full-time music business and music education college students who demonstrate unique qualifications and proven interest in pursuing careers in the music products industry. Funds will be administered by the student’s university and may be partially allocated to support costs of travel to the 2010 NAMM Show.
The NAMM President’s Innovation Award is provided to under-graduate and graduate students. The cash award supports qualified college students to attend NAMM’s annual global music products trade show in Anaheim, California. Awards help with travel needs and expenses to attend the show. Successful candidates will participate in professional development offerings at the show and have access to the more than 1,500 music products exhibits that constitute this global music products trade show.
“Industry support of NAMM’s tradeshows allows the NAMM Board to give back to these worthy programs,” said Joe Lamond, president and CEO, NAMM. “The scholarships will help to recruit the best and brightest who will become the future leaders of the industry.”
The NAMM Foundation is a non-profit organization with the mission of advancing active participation in music making across the lifespan by supporting scientific research, philanthropic giving and public service programs from the international music products industry.
