Confetti Institute Introduces the Steve Lillywhite Scholarship

Confetti, a dynamic and progressive learning institute offering specialist vocational education and training, has announced the launch of the Steve Lillywhite Scholarship. This prestigious scholarship, named after the renowned six-time Grammy-winning record producer Steve Lillywhite, aims to provide exceptional opportunities for driven and motivated UK students pursuing a career in music production.

Steve Lillywhite is celebrated globally for his unparalleled contributions to modern music, having worked with iconic artists such as Talking Heads, The Rolling Stones, U2, and The Killers.

Now, in partnership with Confetti, he seeks to mentor and guide the next generation of musical talent. Lillywhite said: 

"I’m deeply committed to nurturing the future of music production, and I’m excited about the prospect of working closely with a deserving student at Confetti, helping them take significant strides in their career."

The Scholarship is open to all UK students applying to the MA Music Production course at Confetti's campuses in Nottingham and London. This exceptional scholarship opportunity includes 100% fully-funded tuition fees and personalised 1:1 mentoring sessions with Steve Lillywhite. What’s more, students will benefit from Confetti’s partnership with Tileyard, the world’s largest professional music community – a creative hub home to over 200 music businesses such as Soundcloud, Ableton and Believe, and over 150 private recording studios, home to The Prodigy, Noel Gallagher and more.

This exclusive partnership allows Confetti Music students to experience a contemporary curriculum, delivered on our campuses in Nottingham and London, and access to more real-life industry experiences and connections through Tileyard.

To be eligible for consideration, applicants must hold an offer to study on the MA Music Production course at Confetti and be classified as a 'Home' student. The application process requires the submission of three streamable tracks along with a written submission (maximum 500 words) outlining the applicant's contributions to the tracks and explaining why the scholarship would be beneficial. Alternatively, applicants may submit a short video via a private YouTube link.

This scholarship represents an extraordinary chance for aspiring music producers to gain invaluable industry exposure, forge essential connections, and receive guidance from one of the most influential figures in the music industry.

Applications for the Steve Lillywhite Scholarship are now open. Interested students are encouraged to visit the Confetti website for further details on eligibility criteria and application procedures.
