Recording Academy to give $11,000 in scholarships

Getting into a charitable spirit, the Recording Academy, sponsors of the annual Grammy Awards, will give $11,000 in scholarships to five winners of its second annual Entertainment Law Initiative Essay Contest. The money will be awarded Feb. 22 during a special luncheon co-sponsored by the Recording Academy and the American Bar Assn.

BMG president and CEO Strauss Zelnick will discuss the role of entertainment lawyers in the 21st century, focusing on the ways in which First Amendment issues and violence involving members of the music industry will require artists’ attorneys to deal with more than just contracts and sales matters.

In addition to those words of wisdom and the scholarship money, the future lawyers will receive free airfare, lodging and tickets to this year’s Grammys on Feb. 23. They will also take part in Grammy Week events, including the MusiCares dinner gala honoring Elton John.
