Watch Rico Love & Akeal Evans Discuss "Your Future Is Now" Scholarship On Instagram Live
Back in February 2021, the Recording Academy's Black Music Collective (BMC) teamed up with Amazon Music to launch an instructive and impactful scholarship program.
Now, they're gearing up again in 2022. So let this in-depth Instagram Live conversation serve as a reminder that today (Friday, June 10) is the final deadline to apply for the "Your Future Is Now" scholarship program.
If you haven't heard of it before, "Your Future Is Now" aims to provide mentorship opportunities and donations to HBCU (Historically Black Colleges & Universities) students and music programs.
The scholarship program offers select students currently enrolled at a HBCU networking opportunities with esteemed members of the music industry, including an immersive rotation program with Amazon Music and Recording Academy department leads, providing each student a detailed look at their particular field of work within the music industry.
In the above video, Rico Love, the Vice Chair of the Recording Academy's Board of Trustees, and 2021 "Your Future Is Now" recipient Akeal Evans discuss the merits of this beneficial, BMC-backed initiative.
All applicants must submit a current and complete grades transcript, a personal statement, a creative video showing their creativity, and one online recommendation.
