The Moses Schneider Scholarship

We are delighted to announce that BIMM University Berlin has partnered with the hugely successful engineer and producer, Moses Schneider, for a brand-new scholarship.

As one of Germany’s most influential music producers, Schneider has produced several numbers one and gold records and is responsible for some of the most celebrated records of recent years and is most known for his work with iconic German acts such as Tocotronic, Beatsteaks, Kreator and Annenmaykantereit. Also, in 2018 and 2022 he was nominated for the German music Award ‘Preis für Popkultur’ as ‘Favourite Producer’, which is why we couldn’t be more excited to launch this scholarship at BIMM University Berlin in his name.

Applicable to students starting their course in September 2024, The Moses Schneider Scholarship will provide full three-year tuition fees for a candidate who is from a low household income and/or a group that is under-represented in higher education. The scholarship is designed to assist individuals who demonstrate talent in their chosen discipline, strong creative potential, and a desire to pursue a career in the creative industries.

The scholarship will support eligible undergraduate students across all our music courses at BIMM University Berlin.

We understand that studying at university can be financially challenging, so in order to help you achieve your goals, we offer a number of scholarships and bursaries.
