Carl Cox, one of the pioneers of 90s UK dance scene, has announced he is working with WaterBear - The College of Music to launch a new scholarship award under his own name. The dance music legend is a true champion of up and coming artists, and has always been one to use his platform as a way to showcase the next generation.
The Carl Cox Scholarship Award will be presented to one deserving WaterBear student per academic year. The award constitutes equipment to the value of £15,000. The goal is to help support the student's music projects and career goals. In order to be eligible, students must be enrolled in the BA (Hons) Electronic Music and Business.
“I’m really excited to support WaterBear - The College of Music in providing this scholarship award and contributing to someone’s career journey in music," Carl Cox shared in a press release. "Hopefully this will help the creative process and lead to some great new electronic music that we can all enjoy.”
The course will be available to students online and on-site in Brighton beginning September 2021. This is an exciting opportunity to join in on the ground floor of a new degree. According to their website it "is designed to give you the perfect blend of artistic freedom alongside practical strategies to forge your own career. The degree is built on three fundamental elements – your music, your career, and your projects. It deals with what really matters in the industry. It will expand your options and push you to create original, boundary-shifting music. It’s fully accredited and approved by one of the UK’s leading specialist universities for the creative industries, Falmouth University."
