The Bruce Swedien Scholarship Fund

“Music First!”

This year marks the 80th birthday of legendary producer/engineer Bruce Swedien, whose career in the recording industry spans more than 60 years. The Audio Engineering Society Educational Foundation (AESEF), working closely with Bruce’s family, is honoring Bruce with a scholarship funded by his colleagues, fans and friends in the business, as a way to say “thank you” for his many gifts and to help aid young recording engineers who believe in putting the “Music First!,” as is Bruce’s mantra.

Those who know Bruce are aware of his ongoing dedication to the craft of recording artistry. In addition to his talents and successes, he continues to be an open book to younger artists – imparting his knowledge and history for the benefit of the entire industry, and supporting initiatives such as the AESEF. And he is also an insatiable learner himself, exchanging ideas with other top audio minds at each year’s AES Conventions and other industry gatherings.

This scholarship honors Swedien’s lifetime of excellence as a producer/engineer, musician, author, educator and mentor for the past six decades while complementing the mission of the Audio Engineering Society Educational Foundation: to support future outstanding audio engineering professionals. Scholarships will be offered annually to graduate students in the recording arts who are AES members and who have a passion for maintaining the highest standards of music recording. Applications must be received at AES Headquarters by May 15.

We invite you to join the list of supporters of the Bruce Swedien Scholarship Fund, honoring his career and carrying on his legacy to the next generation.
