Point Blank Online has partnered with Dirtybird Records to create the Dirtybird x Point Blank Equal Opportunity Scholarship, designed to support and give back to the next generation of aspiring BIPOC producers. This scholarship opportunity is exclusively for BIPOC who are passionate and driven to begin producing music or further their career in electronic music production.
Dirtybird is an underground house music label and event company founded by world-renowned DJ/producer and Point Blank graduate Claude VonStroke. Recognizing that house and techno music is of black origin, Dirtybird & Point Blank created this scholarship to support diversity in dance music, and help BIPOC gain education in music production.
The Equal Opportunity Scholarship covers all tuition and fees for the Music Production Certificate (Online), a 6-month program in which students will gain skills necessary to write and produce music at a professional level. With our virtual classroom, outside class 1-2-1 review sessions, and student forums, Point Blank offers an all-encompassing educational experience from wherever you are in the world. Dirtybird will also provide mentorship in marketing, branding, and career development, as well as a gear grant for each scholarship recipient.
VonStroke says “Dirtybird is excited to partner with Point Blank, a premier school for electronic music producers, and to mentor the next chosen scholarship winner over the next six months.”
