Icon Collective’s Black Voices Scholarship is a new artist fund supporting Black students attending the music school. Three students will receive a scholarship of $19,500 to help offset school expenses. The scholarship focuses on three separate categories including production, singing (vocalists) and business (entrepreneurs). Their efforts come in response to Black Lives Matter to help create more opportunities for Black creatives within the music industry.

Our responsibility is to nurture and aid the next generation of music creatives and professionals with an inclusive educational environment. After years of turning out successful graduates from our programs, it became abundantly clear that Black artists have been severely underrepresented within ICON. We understand we need to make a conscious effort to change.
A scholarship to covering $19,500 of Icon’s $25,995 tuition. The awarded sum is one-quarter short of a full scholarship. This was intentional. They believe shouldering some of the tuition costs helps build character to succeed in the program and as a thriving, entrepreneurial artist thereafter. Applications are open until August 17. Winners announced between September 14 – 21.

The electronic alt-pop duo recently released “Atypical” a song about living unapologetically and embracing the good, bad and ugly.
