Carl Cox launches scholarship to support young electronic music artists

The scholarship has been developed in partnership with Brighton's WaterBear College

Brighton music college WaterBear has teamed up with Carl Cox to award a scholarship to an Electronic Music & Business student.

Earlier this year, WaterBear college announced that one enrolled student would recieve a scholarship and £15,000 in order to help support their music projects and career goals as part of the BA (hons) Electronic Music & Business course.

Now, the winner of the 2021 scholarship has been announced as Lewis Voros, an up-and-coming beatboxer from Portsmouth, UK. Speaking about the scholarship, Lewis said: “Thank you so much to Carl and WaterBear! I'm honoured to have been selected and am very excited to see how this scholarship will help me develop as an artist.”

WaterBear first announced its new Electronic Music & Business course back in February. The course itself can be studied on-site in Brighton, or online via remote learning from anywhere in the world.

The Carl Cox Scholarship can again be applied for by any student enrolling onto the BA (Hons) Electronic Music and Business course in September 2022. You can find out more information about the course here
