richard antwi

Calling all aspiring music managers from Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic (BAME) backgrounds – applications are now open for the Richard Antwi (below) Scholarship.

The scheme provides full support to a student attending the MA in Music Business Management course at the University of Westminster, London.

It covers tuition fees for the 2018/2019 academic year, plus a contribution to living costs and the opportunity to undertake valuable industry work experience.

It’s aimed at applicants from the BAME community who are in financial need.  The successful applicant doesn’t need to be a graduate, however a passion for music and an entrepreneurial spirit is a must.

The scholarship was established in memory of late music manager and lawyer Antwi who passed away in 2016 aged just 38.

Antwi was a groundbreaking music entrepreneur who played a pivotal role in the careers of Wretch 32, Lethal Bizzle, Wiley and Tinie Tempah.

The scheme is supported by Island Records, XL Recordings, Universal, Sony Music, Warners, Sony/ATV and Clintons law firm.
