The ALMF Scholarship is a way to further Alex Legg's work in encouraging and helping aspiring singer songwriters. 2019 is the 5th year of the Scholarship. Each year for the last 4 years the ALMF has given away a $3000.00 Scholarship to assist an emerging singer songwriter. Past winners have been Tim Hulsman in 2015, Kristian Mizzi and Zac Saber in 2016, Charlie Bedford in 2017 and Deborah Helen Wright in 2018. Each of these recipients has been able to develop their careers further and the ALMF is happy to help.

The Scholarship comprises a $3,000 Grant plus a day’s recording and production time at The Bakery Production and Recording Studio, access to ALMF Board Members’ experience, expertise and networks, plus attendance at Berklee Music’s Pat Pattison’s Songwriting Masterclass in Melbourne in August 2020 (or an online equivalent), and any other career assistance and direction the ALMF may provide in the spirit of Alex Legg, who devoted so much time and energy to encouraging emerging Singer Songwriters.

The successful applicant will not only have great songs but also possess the will and drive to develop a sustainable, long lasting music career. This is not a song or singing competition, the ALMF is looking for an artist it can help, whose values and aspirations reflect those of the Foundation.
