BIMM Bristol to offer scholarship in memory of Led Zeppelin manager
BIMM Bristol, the college of popular music, is offering a Peter Grant Memorial Scholarship in memory of the legendary figure best known as the manager of Led Zeppelin.

The scholarship is for a place on the brand new BA (Hons) degree course, Music Industry Management, which is being launched by BIMM Bristol from September 2012. The Peter Grant Memorial Scholarship will cover approx £16,000 of course fees across the three-year undergraduate programme.

BIMM Principal Vaseema Hamilton explained: "BIMM have created this scholarship in memory of the one of the most influential figures of the modern music industry."

Peter Grant's daughter, Helen Grant, added: "My father would have been both touched and honoured that this scholarship has been created in his name. He was a great inspiration to many people in the business; not only on the management front, but also in the way he looked after his artists in his own, infamous way! A charismatic personality coupled with great humor, means he is never far away. This is a long overdue accolade."

Mark Clayden, BIMM Bristol College manager commented: "We have designed the BA (Hons) Music Industry Management to support up and coming young professionals eager to make their mark in the music industry. We will be training students in all areas of this ever changing industry including: Live Event Management, Retail, Promotion, Record Labels, A&R, Working With Musicians, Finances and Music Law."

As well as managing Led Zeppelin, Peter Grant also worked closely with Bo Diddley, The Everly Brothers, Little Richard, Chuck Berry, Gene Vincent, the Animals and the Yardbirds, to name a few.

In 1996, The MMF award for outstanding achievement in management was renamed the Peter Grant Award in his honour.
