Point Blank x Resident Advisor Present: Young Producers Scholarship – Apply Now!

We’re excited to announce that we have again teamed up with the renowned Resident Advisor to launch a new scholarship programme, the Young Producers Scholarship. This scholarship initiative was created to help passionate musicians who may not have the opportunities or funding to reach the heights that they are capable of. This year, we have extended the initiative to not only include a London programme but courses in both Los Angeles and online.

The three recipients of our collaborative programme with RA will be awarded either a full scholarship to the CertHE Music Production & DJ Practice course worth over £9,000 at our HQ in the heart of London’s creative hub, Shoreditch, a full scholarship to the Music Production & DJ Performance Master Diploma in Los Angeles or the CertHE Music Production & Sound Engineering (online).

These extensive courses are some of our most popular available, featuring modules such as Intro to Music Production, DJ Skills, Music Composition, Sound Design, Art of Mixing, Music Industry and more, making it perfect for anyone looking to kickstart their career in the music business. Show us your outstanding talent and your will to work and PB & RA can take you as far as you want to go.

One of our previous winners, Tailor Jae, has since gone on to play alongside the likes of Kurupt FM, Spooky and more and guested on Rinse FM as well as Keep Hush UK alongside Conducta and the Kiwi Rekords crew.

How to Apply

To apply for one of these scholarships, simply apply for either the London, LA or online course and then submit a scholarship application in the form of a CV and Cover Letter (2 sides A4 maximum). Your covering letter should include the following:

  • The scholarship you are applying for (school location and course name)
  • The reason you are applying and should be selected for the scholarship
  • Highlights of your relevant musical experience (professional or personal)
  • Links to your artist social media profiles (Soundcloud, YouTube, Insta etc.)
  • Links to video / audio clips showcasing your strongest music and/or mix

Applications must be received by midnight on 31st August 2021. Please email your complete application to scholarships@pointblankmusicschool.com.

If you are selected as a finalist, you will be invited to attend a virtual panel interview between 8th September and 15th September. Once all of the shortlisted applicants have been interviewed the winner will be selected, contacted and officially announced on 17th September.

You can find out more about our scholarships and bursaries by heading to our designated pages for London, Los Angeles and online.
