Denton-based Friends With Benefits announced that it will again offer scholarships and grants to local musicians for education and creative purposes. The application deadline for both funding opportunities is May 14.
Friends With Benefits will give scholarships to two music students pursuing a college degree in music and grants to two local bands to help further their creative projects.
“Last year, our organization was able to fund two local students, as well as two prominent Denton-based bands, Swandiver and The Infaminsts,” said Vice-president Dallas Guill to the Denton Record-Chronicle. “With many of us in this organization having backgrounds in the Denton music scene, this program allows us the chance to invest in the career of young musicians and support up and coming local acts.”
