API has opened submissions for its 10th annual scholarship award. Formerly known as the API Visionary Scholarship, the API Saul Walker Memorial Scholarship honors API Co-Founder Saul Walker, who lent his knowledge to several institutions and shared his passion for audio through teaching for many years.
The company believes that using high-quality analog equipment in the audio lab can facilitate academic excellence in sound training. The Saul Walker Memorial Scholarship is offered as a way to give back to the audio community, and encourage audio students to work with analog gear early on in their education.
The scholarship application consists of several short essay questions, and a submission of the applicant's best audio work. Applicants must attend a higher education facility with an API console in order to qualify for the scholarship. Past years have brought in applications from around the world, with musical selections ranging from classic rock covers to original orchestral compositions, and many varieties in between.
The analog recording gear company will accept all applications postdated before the May 1 deadline, and winners will be announced by June 30.
