Four Scholarships Announced for new Johannesburg Campus
04 Apr 2019
We are extremely proud to announce four brand-new scholarships as part of the launch of our Johannesburg campus in Rosebank.
By partnering with some of South Africa’s most respected and influential artists we are able to offer these new scholarships to deserving disadvantaged students wanting to study audio at our industry-leading school.
Our Johannesburg campus scholarship patrons are:
- DJ Zinhle
- Jeremy Loops
These scholarships are offered in partnership with international non-profit, Bridges for Music, who provide education opportunities to disadvantaged young creatives and have global artists that include Skrillex, Ritchie Hawtin and Luciano as their ambassadors.
The recipients of the 2019 scholarships will be awarded an opportunity to study towards a one-year Higher Certificate in Sound Production at our new state-of-the-art campus in Rosebank, Johannesburg.
“I’m excited to be part of this programme, the thought of even one woman receiving the opportunity to change their life makes me happy. I can’t wait to meet and work with whomever is deserving of this life-changing opportunity,” says DJ Zinhle, whose scholarship will only be open to female applicants.
“We have always been deeply committed and passionate about giving back to the industry and we are proud to have partnered with some of South Africa’s most respected local artists to facilitate opportunities to help the aspiring youth make their musical ambitions a reality,” says Trenton Birch, Director.
Our new 1,700 square metre campus in Rosebank, Johannesburg is a powerful addition to the creative media education landscape, providing students, staff, and guests with an inspiring environment in which to work and study.
The campus is based in the trendy, vibrant Design District building that is the home to film companies, TV channels, casting studios and music businesses. Within a five-minute walk of the Gautrain, it is also surrounded by a multicultural mix of restaurants and venues with inspirational design shops and quirky stores.
