Live Nation and the House of Blues’ Music Forward Foundation have teamed up to offer three $10,000 scholarships to college juniors and seniors pursuing careers in the music industry.
The Live Nation scholarships were established in 2016 to help support a new generation of music industry professionals in careers in the concert business including concert promotion, venue operation, ticketing, sponsorship, e-commerce and artist management.
“Live Nation supports future leaders in pursuit of a career in the music industry,” said Mark Campana, chief operations officer of Live Nation US Concerts, in a press release. “Music Forward helps bridge community to industry and we look forward to this year’s group of candidates and continuing to grow this important philanthropic program.”
Music Forward Foundation is now accepting applications for the 2019 Live Nation US Concerts Scholarship Program. There are three scholarships available: The Steven J. Finkel Service Scholarship is designed to support customer service expectations within the live entertainment industry; the Tiffany Green Operator Scholarship is designed to support women pursuing a career in live entertainment; and the Live Nation US Concerts Scholarship supports students interested in the core areas of Live Nation’s business.
Applicants must apply at hobmusicforward.org ahead of a March 31 deadline. Scholarship selections will be made by a panel of Live Nation executives and thought leaders across academic, entertainment, civic and corporate sectors. Criteria for selection include academic achievement, essay responses and recommendations. Recipients will be announced in June and awards will be given for the fall 2019 semester.
