At the “Women@NAMM presents The SWIM (Smart Women in Music) Fund” networking event last week, the chairs of the SWIM Fund announced a scholarship opportunity for six emerging female leaders to connect, support and grow in their leadership and professional capabilities at Summer NAMM in Nashville, Tennessee (July 18-20, 2019). The scholarship is designed to help aid in travel, housing, and other expenses related to attending Summer NAMM, where the selected recipients will attend a series of professional development sessions, shadow industry leaders, and be recognized at a SWIM Meet reception.

“The scholarship is a great opportunity for women who may not have the means to attend the Summer Show. This scholarship supports the mission of the SWIM Fund to connect, support, and grow, and the Summer NAMM Show provides the network for women to connect with other leaders in the industry, receive support through the SWIM mentorship program, and grow their skills through the hundreds of educational learning sessions,” offered Robin Walenta, SWIM captain, and NAMM chair.

At the SWIM reception, and inspired by the opportunity, Christie Carter of Carter Vintage Guitars offered a matching donation of up to $15,000 to the SWIM Fund. Donors interested in having their gift to the Fund matched are encouraged to donate before February 28 via the SWIM Foundation page on the NAMM Foundation website.

The Summer NAMM scholarship application process is now open to qualified candidates and closes on February 28. All candidates should review the eligibility requirements before applying.
