Music industry lawyer and manager Richard Antwi died in 2016, but his legacy is a scholarship funded by a number of music industry companies and run with the UK’s University of Westminster, focusing on Black and minority ethnic students looking to break into the music industry.
The scholarship was paused last year but is now returning, and is inviting potential applicants to sign up for virtual open days in March, May and June for the university’s Music Business Management MA course that kicks off later this year.
“We’re really excited about the reopening of applications, which not only lifts our spirits, but offers much needed opportunity to talented individuals in the current climate. There is a real sense of achievement in seeing what the past scholars have gone on to do, and we’re looking forward to seeing what great things new scholars will achieve,” said Phillip Antwi, Richard’s brother.
