Abbey Road Institute scholarship for Black Students

Posted on: Thursday 19th of November 2020

The first-of-its-kind Scholarship programme, which begins in 2021, will cover the full cost of the course fees and contribute towards living expenses for two black British students annually to study on Abbey Road Institute’s Advanced Diploma in Music Production and Sound Engineering. Abbey Road Institute is the education arm of Abbey Road Studios, offering highly specialised training for the next generation of audio professionals.

Upon successful completion of the course [image shows graduation in Abbey Road’s Studio Two], the two graduates will be offered a year-long trainee engineering role within Abbey Road Studios, providing the opportunity to put all they’ve learnt into practice at one of the world’s most prestigious and historic recording studios. The Abbey Road Scholarship programme is the first in a series of initiatives from the London studios seeking to create education and mentoring opportunities for young black people, as part of a broader commitment to creating meaningful change within music production.

Managing Director Isabel Garvey says:

‘I’m thrilled that this programme will create new opportunities for aspiring young engineers by giving them not just the educational foundation, but also the benefit of practical experience working with the best artists, composers and engineers in the industry. Abbey Road has always been about training the best studio talent, so it’s brilliant that the Scholarship will help diversify the next generation of engineering professionals from the ground up’.

Further details of the scholarship can be found on the Abbey Road website and I’ve also attached the full press release for reference, including details of the participation of Polydor Records’ Raye, who will be involved and offering guidance as part of the programme.
