GRAMMY Museum And Recording Academy Announce 2nd Annual Quinn Coleman Memorial Scholarship

The GRAMMY Museum® and the Recording Academy® have announced the launch of the second annual Quinn Coleman Memorial Scholarship. The program is designed to continue eliminating barriers within the music industry by providing Black college students professional development experiences that will prepare them for future full-time employment. Established in 2021, the program was named in honor of the late music executive and DJ Quinn Coleman, who tragically passed away at the age of 31 in 2020. Following his passing, his family established the Quinn Coleman Memorial Scholarship through the GRAMMY Museum to help keep his legacy alive.
The Recording Academy’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion team will carefully select currently enrolled college students across the country who aspire to pursue careers in the music industry or other related creative fields. Five interns will be chosen to collaborate closely with the GRAMMY Museum, Recording Academy and affiliated chapters. Additionally, each intern will receive two $1,000 scholarships for tuition, a $500 stipend for interview preparation, two $250 stipends for books and equipment, and funding to invest in personal portfolios, in addition to a spring internship at the Recording Academy or Latin Recording Academy®.

“I’m thrilled to see Quinn’s legacy continue with another year of Quinn Coleman Scholars. With the help of the GRAMMY Museum and the Recording Academy, we are excited to welcome the next class of students passionate about music inclusion, excellence and dedication,” said Debra Lee, Founder of Leading Women Defined and Former Chairman & CEO of BET Networks.

The scholarship application opens on Tues, Sept. 5, and will close on Fri, Oct. 6. Selected scholarship recipients will be announced on Tues, Oct. 17.
