RECORD HIGH Announces Music Scholarship Program

RECORD HIGH, a contemporary music education program designed to prepare New Jersey high school students for a career in the music industry, announced that the program is partnering with the Devils Youth Foundation (DYF) for the second annual scholarship program. Individual awards of $1,000 will be given to twelve high school seniors from New Jersey who demonstrate notable talent in music, industry interest, technical support, and leadership roles within their local communities. Teachers or music professionals with firsthand knowledge of the student’s abilities are welcome to submit applicants for consideration.

The Devils Youth Foundation continues its commitment of bringing life-changing opportunities to New Jersey’s youth through the power of sports and entertainment and by virtue of the support of its marquee brands, the New Jersey Devils, Prudential Center, and the RECORD HIGH program. This year alone, DYF will support over 12,000 youth in the Greater Newark Area.

“The Devils Youth Foundation and Record High’s Scholarship in music is not just an investment in talent; it’s an investment in the beauty and inspiration that music brings to our lives,” said Allison Blitzer, Chair of the Devils Youth Foundation. “With these twelve scholarships, our aim is to champion high school seniors who have not only showcased exceptional musical interest and ability but have also taken on a leadership role within their communities.”

In addition to the $1,000 scholarship, each student will be invited to a reception at a New Jersey Devils home game later in the season and participate in all RECORD HIGH after-school education programs for the balance of their senior year.

“RECORD HIGH is extremely excited to once again partner with Devils Youth Foundation to provide twelve New Jersey High School students with the opportunity for scholarships,” said Mark Conklin, Vice President, Artist Relations & Programing, Record High at Prudential Center. “Over its inaugural year, RECORD HIGH has already established itself as one of the premier music programs in the state of New Jersey by providing unforgettable experiences for its participants. We cannot thank the Devils Youth Foundation and Blitzer Family enough for their continued partnership and support of this initiative.”
