Richard Antwi Scholarship

​Calling all future industry leaders!

The Richard Antwi Scholarship has opened for its 5th round, accepting applications from future music industry leaders from Black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds who already hold an offer of a place on the Music Business Management MA course at University of Westminster.

The Richard Antwi Scholarship is an annual award comprising full course fees; a bursary of £10,500; mentorship and assistance with work placement aligned with the scholar’s professional focus and aspirations.

The scholarship is funded by all three UK major record labels, publishers, and some of the top independent music companies including XL Records, Beggars Group, Young, Clintons, Hoare Associates and Modest! Management.

Previous winners include Shanice Edwards and Idris Green Holder - who received a scholarship supported by Universal Music UK and will be placed into the company’s Graduate Programme as Richard Antwi Graduate Programme Executive.

Alec Boateng (Co-President, 0207 Def Jam), Taponeswa Mavunga (Director of Africa, Sony Music UK) and musician Wretch 32 are encouraging aspiring future industry leaders to sign up now to The Music Business Management MA Course Open Day on Wednesday March 2nd - sign up here!
