Grammy U is the membership program launched by the Recording Academy in the US for college students hoping to work in the music industry.

Well, that’s what it was, anyway: this week the requirement for college enrollment has been dropped, opening the program up for more people.

Full-time students are still included, but now part-time students as well as “professionals or creatives between 19-29 years old pursuing a career in music”.

The membership costs $50 and lasts for four years, before shifting to an annual $50 payment if members are still eligible.

“With this expansion, Grammy U is ensuring that membership will be more inclusive and accessible for the next generation of music creators and professionals, no matter their career path,” said Recording Academy CEO Harvey Mason Jr.
