This year, 2016, counts as the ninth that API has opened submissions for its Visionary Scholarship. The company offers the program as a way to ‘give back’ to the audio community. It’s also seen as a way to encourage the use of analogue gear (for audio students early on in their education), in a meaningful way, rather than a reliance on digital technologies only.
Applicants will need to supply answers to a number of short essay question, along with a submission of the their best audio work. Students wishing to apply can only do so if they attend an institute of higher learning with an API console, (click here for list of eligible institutes).
Past Visionary Scholarship’s have seen applications from throughout the world, with musical selections ranging from classic rock covers to original orchestral compositions, with many variations and genres in-between.
The deadline for final submission is no later than April 1st 2016, with winners announced by June 30th.
