March, 2020, Jessup, Maryland:
API is proud to open submissions for its Thirteenth Annual API Saul Walker Memorial Scholarship. Formerly known as the API Visionary Scholarship, the program honors the late Saul Walker, API Co-Founder and 2019 Technical GRAMMY® Award Recipient, who lent his brilliance to several institutions and shared his passion for audio through teaching for many years.
API believes that academic excellence in sound training must be facilitated by using high quality analog equipment in the audio lab. The API Saul Walker Memorial Scholarship is one way API gives back to the audio community, and invests in audio students who work with analog gear during their education.
The scholarship application consists of a short essay 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.
API will accept all applications postmarked before the May 1st deadline, and winners will be announced by June 30th. For more information regarding the scholarship, as well as the application forms and a complete list of qualifying schools, please visit APIaudio.com/scholarships.php.
