Sponsors

Women are currently estimated to make up just 5% of the music technology industry. Research shows that young women drop out of music tech around the age of 16. The Gazelle Twin Scholarship was created to encourage women and non binary students to pursue a career in this field, starting with a degree from Sussex. In the Music Department at Sussex, we have a strong focus on equality, diversity and inclusion. We value diverse backgrounds and musical styles.

Funding partners

The Gazelle Twin Scholarship is funded by donations from University of Sussex Music Department alumni.
