BIMM is proud to announce a new scholarship, The Peter Grant Memorial Scholarship, in memory of the legendary rock manager best known as the manager of Led Zeppelin.
The scholarship is for a place on a brand new BA (Hons) degree course, Music Industry Management, which is being launched by BIMM Bristol from September 2012. This course, as with all BIMM programmes, is vocational and designed to act as a springboard into employment. The Peter Grant Memorial Scholarship will cover approx £16,000 of course fees across the three year undergraduate programme.
As well as managing Led Zeppelin, Peter Grant also worked closely with Bo Diddley, The Everly Brothers, Little Richard, Chuck Berry, Gene Vincent, the Animals and the Yardbirds, to name a few. In 1996, The Music Managers Forum (MMF) award for outstanding achievement in management was renamed the Peter Grant Award in his honour.
