Fontaines D.C. have launched a new scholarship at the Dublin music college at which they met.
The Fontaines D.C. BA (Hons) in Commercial Modern Music Scholarship will see one student have their €12,000 fees covered on a four-year course at the BIMM Institute.
“We’re honoured to have a scholarship in our name,” Fontaines bassist Conor Deegan explains. “Our time in BIMM gave us time to figure out who we wanted to be as a band. We were given guidance on how to achieve our dreams. We’re looking forward to being able to help someone else succeed at their time there with this scholarship.”
BIMM College Principal Alan Cullivan adds: “Everyone at BIMM Dublin is thrilled to be launching this scholarship with Fontaines D.C., having watched their career grow with great excitement both before and since they completed their studies.
“At BIMM, we are driven by a commitment to helping Ireland’s next generation of music talent achieve their creative goals and realise their ambitions as artists… to be able to offer that in collaboration with our former students is a bonus.”
