"True House Music consists of four main ingredients: A cup of spirituality, a tablespoon of love, a dash of togetherness, and a pinch of soul-penetrating beats. House Music has the power to heal, to soothe, to comfort. It’s the music of love, the music from up above. True House Music is an instrument of God and if this instrument is used wisely, it can change your soul. House is a feeling. If you feel nothing, it isn’t House.” - C&M Productions ft. Marcel.
Music is the connective force of our life. Like an act of grace, creating music can ignite the hearts of millions.
Music is one of the most powerful forces in creating and binding community, but mass representation does not sufficiently reflect the variety of today’s music production and performance as an artform.
Solving this problem requires a coordinated effort across industries, but it starts with encouraging budding artists.
The Austin Kramer Music Scholarship exists to support students who will use their talents to make the world a better place with music.
This scholarship is open to any student, in any field of study.
Pick a song that inspires you.
Then, curate a 10-20 track playlist on YouTube or SoundCloud to elaborate on the song you selected as your inspiration.
Finally, submit a paragraph (under 100 words) explaining your playlist.
The application deadline is Jan 30, 2021. Winners will be announced on Mar 8, 2021.
The scholarship award is $3,265 per winner.
The winner will be publicly announced on Mar 8, 2021. Prior to the announcement date, we may contact finalists with additional questions about their application. We will work with donors to review all applications according to the scholarship criteria. Winners will be chosen based on the merit of their application.
Award checks will be sent to the financial aid office of the winner's academic institution in their name to be applied to their tuition, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school's requirements). If the award is for a qualified educational non-tuition expense, we will work with the winner directly to distribute the award and make sure it goes towards qualified expenses.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to confirm their academic enrollment status. Depending on the circumstances, verification of Student ID and/or their most recent transcript will be required.
