The former Stone Roses frontman and latterday solo artist has lent his name to a new scholarship scheme being operated by UK audio engineering and music production school SSR London.

The scholarship is worth £10,000 – equivalent to the fees for SSR’s Audio Engineering Techniques and Technology course at the London campus in Camden, beginning in March or September this year.

“It is an honour for me to be supporting SSR London and the next generation of talented producers and engineers being taught there,” said Brown, whose links with SSR stretch back to the years when it operated as Spirit Studios. “I have a long history with SSR from the early days recording with the Stone Roses, and I hope the scholarship inspires the next generation of talented producers and artists.”

SSR London’s head of audio, Jonathan Espinosa, added: “Ian Brown is an iconic figure in the industry. He has written and produced inspirational music with powerful lyrics. It is an honour and a privilege that he is offering his support to SSR and we are so excited at the unique opportunities that this scholarship can offer.”

Applicants must be 16+ years of age, be able to demonstrate their creativity and passion for music production/sound engineering, and have the potential to offer something special to the industry.

There are two scholarship places available: March 2011 and September 2011. Both scholarships pertain to SSR’s Audio Engineering Techniques & Technology course in London.
